Opened in August 2014, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is a beautiful camp in a very remote location of northern Damaraland, about 1km outside the boundary of the Skeleton Coast National Park. Built in a private concession, or reserve, close to the ephemeral Hoanib River, it is surrounded by gravel plains, mountains and large yellow sand dunes. It is viewed as a successor to the Skeleton Coast Camp, which closed a few years ago.

Our view of Hoanib Skeleton Camp

Hoanib isn’t for the budget conscious, but we think that the truly remote location, the chance to spend time in the Skeleton Coast National Park, and a scattering of really interesting desert-adapted wildlife combine to make it worth the money. Come for these rather than for the camp itself, no matter how stylish. But don’t expect a parade of animals – this is a tough environment in which to eke out an existence.
