SKELETON COAST CAMP

Skeleton Coast Camp is a 12-bedded camp in Namibia's Skeleton Coast, built up on wooden decks on an island in the Khumib River.

We have six luxury tented rooms on raised wooden decks with en-suite bathrooms providing flush toilet, hand basin and shower. The rooms are attractively furnished incorporating locally found natural materials and all rooms have overhead fans and 12v lighting.

The main area of Skeleton Coast Camp incorporates a dining room, lounge and bar area surrounded by glass concertina doors to allow for uninterrupted views of the desert beyond. In fair weather we dine alfresco under an ancient leadwood tree, around the camp fire under the stars.

Skeleton Coast Camp is not a pure game viewing safari. Freshwater springs permeate through the barren sands to create rare oases in the desert that sustain pockets of wildlife. Springbok, oryx, the rare desert elephant, Cape fur seals, brown hyaena, jackal, ostrich and occasionally even cheetah eke out an existence in this rugged terrain, alongside desert-adapted vegetation such as Welwitschia and Lithops, the succulent 'flowering stones'.

The routine here at Skeleton Coast Camp is quite different from that of other safari camps in Namibia. There is an incredible amount to see and do. Breakfast is enjoyed in camp and then we head out all day into the Skeleton Coast Park. We take along a picnic lunch and only return at sunset. The days are full, rewarding and enriching.

This area has everything from soaring sand dunes that roar; wonderful, vast, pastel-coloured plains; towering canyons and mountains; salt-pans to seal colonies and shipwrecks. Add to that the game viewing! We are also able to visit authentic Himba settlements, just outside the park, for an incredible cultural experience.

Skeleton Coast Camp can only be reached if booking the Skeleton Coast Safari.
