Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is an exciting camp scenically surrounded by the starkly beautiful gravel plains, mountains, and large, yellow sand dunes of the northern part of Namibia’s Palmwag Concession. Accessible only by light aircraft, this exclusive Namib Desert camp is a gem amongst rugged, iconic, wildlife-filled terrain and boasts the Kaokoveld’s best viewing of rare desert-adapted animals. The historic coastline, endless horizons, isolated wilderness, and vast, fascinating experiences will leave any adventurer awe-inspired.
Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp consists of eight chic, well-insulated en-suite tents with free flow stretch canvas roofing, floating concrete foundations on stilts, and natural wood and sliding glass walls. Each unit, including one family suite, is solar powered and equipped with en-suite bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, and private shaded outdoor decks to look out onto the nearby waterhole frequently visited by oryx, elephants, and other mammals. Colors at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp are muted to blend in with the surrounding desert landscape, and décor is eco-contemporary, enhancing the elevated sense of style and exclusivity.
Flanked to the east and west by craggy hills, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is a true oasis in the desert providing all of the luxuries and amenities for an unforgettable stay. The modern, desert-hued shared spaces include an open fireplace, bar, dining room, library, fire pit, cozy lounge areas, and sundeck where guests can cool off at the lap swimming pool. Furniture is lovingly curated and strategically placed to create a feeling of homely comfort, and meals are personally designed around each guest’s preferences and activity schedule.
Guests at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp have exclusive access to more than 8 million acres of remote and desolate Africa where they can partake in morning and afternoon wildlife viewing drives as well as full-day excursions and nature walks in the area around camp. Very few people have the opportunity to view this corner of the world, where enormous elephant, giraffe, lion, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, and hyena miraculously thrive amidst the stark environment. Also populating the terrain are Gemsbok (oryx), springbok, steenbok, scrub hare, and ground squirrels. The full-day flight excursion along Skeleton Coast offers a completely different experience, showcasing jagged wind-swept beaches and cape fur seal colonies along the coastline. This is a vast, rugged, and isolated wilderness experience, and the diverse range of activities ensures intimate interaction with the spectacular sand dune scenery, unexpected desert-adapted wildlife, and endless dramatic coastlines of the region.Request Information
