Main description of Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp

Located in the most remote part of the Kaokoveld – a land of mountains, vast plains, and dry riverbeds inhabited by fascinating wildlife – Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp lies on the transient Hoanib River. Just seven twin-bedded tents and one family unit with en-suite bathrooms look out over rugged scenery.

The area is explored by vehicle. on foot and in the air* with game drives discovering the wealth of desert-adapted life: elephant, giraffe and antelope followed by lion, leopard and cheetah. Guests can unravel the enigmatic history of the original Strandlopers (“Beachcombers”), their stone circles lying in hidden valleys, marvel at the ancient welwitschia plant, follow the great herds and savour landscapes that unfold untouched for hundreds of kilometres. 

Hoanib Skeleton Coast is a joint venture with the neighbouring Community-based Conservancies of Anabeb, Torra and Sesfontein.

*Guests staying for three nights or more are offered a scenic flight over the Skeleton Coast with its stark shores and lonely shipwrecks visible from the air.
