Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp
Opened in August, 2014, and accessible only by light aircraft, this superbly run, intimate luxury camp is situated at the confluence of two ephemeral rivers in the most isolated part of the Kaokoveld of northwest Namibia. Bordered on the other two sides by rugged hills with views across the desert, the camp boasts a small water hole visited by the local wildlife. Each luxury tent is on hard standing supported by stilts and has an en suite bathroom, minibar and covered verandah. The camp has a research station concerned with desert lion conservation, and talks are sometimes given by the resident scientists.
The camp is beautifully decorated, with a lounge, bar, dining room, library, fire pit and deck by the small swimming pool.
Desert adapted elephant, giraffe, zebra, leopard, cheetah, black rhino, brown hyena, oryx, lion and springbok.
Those staying for three nights or more receive a complimentary excursion to visit Mowe Bay, a desolate outpost on the awesome Skeleton Coast where you will have lunch on the (often foggy) beach within sight of one of its famous shipwrecks. Flights also available when the fog is lifted.
Try to stay for three nights if possible, to gain a true feeling of being away from it all and to benefit from the excursion to the Skeleton Coast which includes a scenic flight back to the lodge.

What can one say about Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp - it was outstanding. Certainly goes into my top five safari destinations. It is a specialist wildlife destination, so f you wish to spend time with truly desert adapted animals this is the place to visit. The scenery is breathtaking and were were fortunate to see some very rare desert adapted lions, elephant and giraffe alongside several other species. We had a private vehicle and guide during our time at the camp, which suited us perfectly. They even arranged for us to have our evening meal with the staff one night so that e could watch the World Cup - really a top camp!
