Skeleton Coast, Namibia
This newly opened luxury safari camp lies among sand dunes overlooking a dry riverbed and waterhole in the Hoanib River Valley, in Namibia’s northern Damaraland, an area with a rich diversity of desert-dwelling wildlife.
Offering a combination of warm hospitality, luxurious accommodation and superb facilities including a swimming pool, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp will appeal to those seeking a truly remote and indulgent wilderness camp experience in a spectacular setting.
Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp provides eight spacious and stylish tents including one family unit. Each tent has been designed to blend in with the natural surroundings and features a sand-coloured canvas roof structure, simple but elegant décor and an expansive deck overlooking the unspoilt landscape, perfect for relaxing on as you admire the views.
As well as game drives to spot the elusive, desert-dwelling elephant and lion, you can take a scenic flight to the Skeleton Coast, visit a desert oasis or race through the sand dunes in a 4WD. Lightfoot Travel can create a personalised itinerary to ensure you make the most of your stay. After a busy day, cool off in the plunge pool as you enjoy the views and later enjoy a delicious meal under the stars.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Skeleton Coast into a greater Namibia and African holiday.

Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp Information
- Location and getting there:
The camp is situated between the Palmwag area and Skeleton Coast National Park in the remote Kaokoveld in Namibia. It is accessible by light aircraft from Windhoek Airport.
There are eight ultra-stylish tents including one family unit with two bedrooms. Each tent features elegant décor, an inviting king-size bed, picture windows to maximize the views, a charming deck and all-modern amenities.
Inside/outside lounge areas
There are endless activities on offer from exploring the dry Hoanib Riverbed in search of desert-dwelling wildlife to visiting the Skeleton Coast, renowned for its seal colonies, shipwrecks and dramatic coastline.
The camp accommodates children over 6 years old, but given the remote location and ambience at the camp, it is better suited to couples or those with much older children.
