Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp

In a remote area of the Kaokoveld, in a land of bare mountains, gravel-strewn plains and dry riverbeds that draw fascinating wildlife, lies Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp.

Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is scenically located in a broad valley at the confluence of two tributaries of the dry Hoanib River in the northern part of the private Palmwag Concession. Its location thus straddles the Palmwag area and the iconic Skeleton Coast National Park, in one of the most remote areas of the Kaokoveld. 

The camp consists of seven large tents and one family unit, each comprising stylish en-suite bedrooms with shaded outdoor decks. Flanked to the east and west by rugged hills, the camp looks out over stunning, starkly beautiful scenery and offers guests all the luxuries and amenities for an unforgettable stay.

Hoanib Camp is known for its association with the Desert Lion Project, as well as studies on brown hyaena. Less well known, but as important, are our elephant researchers who monitor the desert-adapted population in an effort to promote long-term conservation.

Safari Experience

This wilderness area offers excellent viewing of Namibia’s distinctive desert-adapted wildlife.

Diverse activities showcase spectacular scenery, unexpected oases and enormous sand dunes.

Explorations of this isolated yet diverse area take place via game drives along the riverbed’s narrow ribbon of vegetation, where a surprising wealth of desert-adapted wildlife can be found:  elephant, giraffe, gemsbok and springbok, with glimpses of lion and brown hyaena.  

The Skeleton Coast with its desolate rocky coastline, noisy colonies of Cape fur seals and remains of shipwrecks is accessed either by a fascinating drive or scenic flight, depending on the weather.
