Lynn and I were at this remote wilderness camp near Namibia's Atlantic coast in November 2011. If you visit the Skeleton Coast you will be one of only a handful of people in the world to have ever had this experience!   The only way to get to Skeleton Coast Camp is to fly in in one of Wilderness Safari's...

The skeleton coast in north west namibia hugs the atlantic ocean and usually has dry river beds and almost no large animals but it should be on every adventurers bucket list and start with the exceptionally well run skeleton coast camp which has all the bare essentials and none of the frivilous. There are no electrical outlets in the cabin,... More

Stayed for 3 nights here. Food was delicious, all the staff were very friendly and knowledgable and seem genuinely pleased to have you staying in the camp. The scenery is unique, eerie on the coast but quite beautiful. We saw the desert elephant which was very exciting! On the last evening, we ate outside by a big fire, rugs were... More

My wife and I visited Skeleton Coast Camp September 6th to September 10th, 2008. Simply put, it exceeded our expectations in every way. We did a lot of research on this camp, and the experience we would have there, so we knew exactly what we were going to encounter. Faraway places, exotic landscapes, and interesting living conditions are important to... More

The location is fantastic, and we were happy to see a place that is so unusual and remote. Very expensive -- what you are paying for is access to a very isolated and unique ecosystem more than for the facilities themselves, which are only about average. Given the location and the difficulty of getting supplies and people in and out,... More

No ice, minimal refrigeration for bar drinks and other liquids(they are lukewarm),, long (12 hour) activity drives, no fans, etc. - that describes the bad points. I think those are eco things in that they take out the amenities to try to make it environmentally sensitive. Sort of like sitting in the dark with your air conditioned off. Food good,... More

We had an excellent guide, Barier, who has a great sense of humour. All the camp staff were very warm and friendly especially the relief manager Desiree. Selina the camp cook whipped up delicious meals, the best out of the 4 Wilderness camps we visited including the Little Ongava. It is an amazing place, you get to see the huge... More

Oh how I loved this place. Desolate beauty at it's utmost best. The wind howled, the sand was everywhere, it was cold - and it was just magic. Everything, from watching seals, to admiring towering rock formations, to finding deset lions, elephants and giraffes, to drinking gin and tonic in the warm main tent - was just splendid. I have...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Skeleton Coast Camp Classic Camp The Skeleton Coast National Park is one of the planet’s most inhospitable yet hauntingly beautiful places; Skeleton Coast Camp provides a true wilderness experience in one of the most spectacular settings in Africa. About Skeleton Coast Camp Remote skeleton coast camp is set out along the banks of the ephemeral Khumib River and comprises six meru-style canvas-walled tents with spacious bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. An intimate main area sports an open-air ‘dining room’ under an ancient leadwood tree. Environment and Wildlife The terrain is rugged and harsh, yet, for all this, life – unusual and unexpected – prevails. The coastline harbours black-backed jackal and reclusive brown hyaena while inland secret water seeps attract gemsbok, springbok, ostrich, elephant, giraffe, Hartmann’s mountain zebra and occasionally lion. Unique bird species include Damara Tern and Gray’s Lark. Experiencing Skeleton Coast Camp guided nature drives and walks • full-or half-day excursions include: the unique clay castles of the Hoarusib River, rocky Point, the roaring dunes, lichen fields, cape fur seal colonies, Himba villages • remains of shelters used by the Khoisan add a cultural perspective. ... more   less
