Skeleton Coast

The Skeleton Coast extends from the Ugab River in the south, 500 km to the Kunene River in the north. The attraction of this remote area lies essentially in the color, changing moods and untouched landscapes. The climatic conditions are not necessarily what you would expect in a desert; due to dense morning fog from the cold Benguela current it can be damp at dawn, but soon warms up to the intense heat of a desert. Many shipwrecks give it an aura of mystery and impenetrability.
Springbok, oryx, ostrich, hyaena and ostrich are fairly common, while Namibia’s famous desert elephant, black rhino, lion and giraffe are found in the dry river beds. Visitors to the Skeleton Coast Park are only allowed in the park between sunrise and sunset, and permits are available at the two entry gates. The ecologically sensitive area north of Terrace Bay is inaccessible to the general public and entrance to this area is restricted to a few fly-in safaris operators. It’s best to visit the Skeleton Coast Park either on one of the fly-in safaris to the Skeleton Coast or alternatively take a scenic flight from Swakopmund.
