The original Skeleton Coast Camp burnt down in 2012 effectively closing the Skeleton Coast Park to all but the most intrepid of self-sufficient explorers. With a move to the Hoanib River valley in August 2014 the Phoenix has arisen and the Skeleton Coast, one of Namibia's most remote yet iconic destinations, is back ladies and gentlemen.
Back with a bang. The Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is a superlative-defying experience in true Wilderness Safaris avant-garde style. From the fly-in access to the wonderful free-form tented suites to the spell-binding nature experience and the surprising level of luxury in this distant location, Hoanib not only puts the Skeleton Coast back on the map, this extraordinary lodge turns the Skeleton Coast into a must-visit destination.
We recommend a minimum three-night stay to capture the entire experience and you will not begrudge that extra night for one second. Being a Wilderness Safaris camp you can expect the highest standards of bush luxury, service, food and setting as a given. What's more you can expect the nature experience to be out of this world. And with the amazing desert scenery: ancient riverbeds cutting through dolomite mountains, dunefields, oases, desert-adapted wildlife and plantlife and all of this in complete isolation, the experience offers so much more than just another luxury safari lodge.
Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is in an exclusive concession straddling Palmwag the Skeleton Coast parks. This diversity of inland Kaokoland and coastal Namibia gives you an exceptional nature experience. Game drives take you in search of the amazing desert- adapted wildlife including elephants, oryx, giraffe and springbok as well as lion, brown hyena and black-backed jackal if you're lucky. Explore the area on foot or by car with your expert guide bringing the seemingly lifeless desertscape to full-colour living glory and everywhere you go the scenery is not only spectacular it is utterly unique.
