Terrace Bay is on the coast, set deep within the Skeleton Coast National Park.
Terrace Bay: Our full report
Deep within the Skeleton Coast National Park, Terrace Bay is a long (six-hour) drive from Swakopmund, and the most northerly point in the park that's accessible by private vehicle.
Here you can stay in bungalows with private toilets and showers. They're recently upgraded the facilities and the rooms are now simply but nicely furnished. The food has improved from a low base but do not expect haute cuisine! All in all it is not the best camp in Namibia but it is the only place to stay for a very long way and gives you a very good feel for the isolation of the Skeleton Coast.
Ideal length of stay: The reason to come to Terrace Bay is to explore the Skeleton Coast, so most people only drop in for a single night - although keen fisherment may stay for longer.
Directions: Terrace bay is almost 287km north of Henties Bay - or 363km north of Swakopmund; it's a very long drive!
