Can I visit the Skeleton Coast?

Yes definitely! In fact, it’s one of the destinations in Namibia that you don’t want to miss. Great, so now the question is: where is the Skeleton Coast?

The whole Namibian coastline is generally known as the Skeleton Coast stretching from as far south as Luderitz all the way up to the Angolan Border in the north of which a large portion is the Skeleton Coast National Park.

This name has a number of meanings from the whale skeletons left on the beaches centuries ago, to the actual shipwrecks found along the coast, but wherever you are on this coastline, you are actually on the Skeleton Coast. However, we always advise including specific areas and activities to give you a real Skeleton Coast experience:

The Skeleton Coast National Park is largely closed off to the public, but when most people refer to the Skeleton Coast they are referring to this area. There is only one lodge actually inside the park – Shipwreck Lodge and another in the area, with selected activities into the park - Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp.

Speak to a consultant about what you wish to experience on the Skeleton Coast so that we can recommend how best to include this into your tailor-made itinerary.
