If you are looking to venture not too far out of your comfort zone but still want to get a feel of the true African desert, then The Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is your first step to getting the best of both worlds. This unique, yet luxurious camp experience is hidden in between the gravel plains and river beds of the Hoanib River, Namibia.
With its contemporary decor, the camp boasts a strong flair of natural hues, elegant touches and a fresh design that brings a new meaning to the Namibian desert experience. With tents featuring en-suite bedrooms and shaded decks, guests are able to appreciate this intimate set-up while overlooking the desert.
Setting the scene, The Skeleton Coast, is famous for its history of shipwrecks over the centuries and brings with it breathtaking views and picaresque desert scenes. Arc-shaped barchan dunes line the horizons of this beautiful landscape and provide remarkable sunset moments. The Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp gives for a modern camping experience yet still holds those authentic and raw moments of being in nature.
One can enjoy wining and dining, and still get to experience the campfire, bar and lounge areas in this sirene scenery. The fully solar-powered camp is joined by other nearby conservancies who study the conservation of desert-adapted lions, brown hyaena and many more.
The area is also home to a variety of wildlife including giraffe, Hartmann's mountain zebra, gemsbok, springbok, kudu and the rare sightings of elephant, lion, cheetah, and leopard. With a rich diversity of birds, this location is perfect for birders, nature lovers and those who enjoy tranquil surroundings.
