TRAVEL TO SKELETON COAST

swirl 2

The Skeleton National Park stretches along the northern Namibian shoreline for 1570km. The landscape in the park ranges from windswept dunes to rugged canyons with walls of richly-coloured volcanic rock and extensive mountain ranges. Temperatures vary from warm to mostly cool and misty conditions.

The park’s ominous name is well earned, given the scores of shipwrecks littering the beaches as a result of the Benguela Current, dense fog and rough surf. Bleached whale and seal bones are visible, dating back to the days when the whaling industry was still active. Despite its appearance, the Skeleton National Park supports a great variety of species within its borders including big cats, desert-adapted elephant, black rhino and smaller creatures.

A Fly-In safari is a great way to view the vast display of shipwrecks. It is also possible to enter the Skeleton Coast between the Ugab and Hoanib rivers and enjoy the coastline’s superb fishing area.
