Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp
Skeleton Coast - Namibia
This new camp which will be replacing the Wilderness Skeleton Coast Camp is set to open in mid 2013.
The new camp is located on the Hoanib River, the private concession straddling the Palmwag area and Skeleton Coast National Park, in one of the most remote areas of the Kaokoveld. The Kaokoveld is a land of rugged scenery, a rugged and historic coastline, mountains, vast plains, and dry riverbeds inhabited by incredible desert-adapted plant and animal life. Despite the arid environs, one of the greatest concentrations of desert elephant and lion can be found within this extraordinary area – along with sightings of giraffe, antelope, black rhino, leopard and cheetah.
Exploring the territory on foot, by vehicle, in hides, and by air, small groups led by expert safari guides can look forward to unravelling the enigmatic history of the original Strandlopers (“Beachcombers”), their stone circles lying in hidden valleys, marvelling at the ancient Welwitschia plant, following herds and other wildlife, and savouring endless coastlines and landscapes unfolding untouched for hundreds of kilometres.
For the first time, forays into the Hoanib floodplains (previously restricted inside the Skeleton Coast National Park) can be undertaken; this includes the strange upwelling of fresh water at a series of oases in the middle of the shifting Namib Desert. Extended journeys will explore the shores of the world-famous Skeleton Coast.
This exclusive camp, comprising eight units (including one family unit), will be a Classic Camp with all the attendant luxuries and amenities, and is expected to be ready in July 2013, with departures offered on an easy-to-sell daily basis. Along with a dedicated new airfield in the vicinity granting improved access, we look forward to doing this magnificent landscape justice using low-impact design that is sensitive to the fragile desert environment.
