Wilderness Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp

Wilderness Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is nestled in the Skeleton Coast of Namibia. This 500 km stretch of desolate coastline is where the cold Benguela current of the Atlantic meets the warm desert air, creating a unique micro-climate. The camp is designed in harmony with its desert surroundings, providing a serene and graceful retreat, offering the opportunity to witness a rich diversity of desert-adapted species. 

Accessible only by light aircraft, Wilderness Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp offers high-end hospitality in a rugged, ancient landscape. The camp is a joint venture with the Anabeb, Torra, and Sesfontein conservancies, and is fully solar powered to support wildlife conservation. The on-site Research Centre provides insights into the area’s wildlife, allowing guests to engage with conservation researchers. 

Guests can explore the isolated Kaokoveld region on guided nature drives, discovering an array of desert-adapted wildlife such as elephants, giraffes, lions, hyenas, and oryx along the riverbed’s vegetation. Day trips to the Skeleton Coast reveal shipwreck remnants and Cape fur seal colonies, beginning with an exhilarating dune drive and concluding with a scenic light aircraft flight (weather-dependent).
