Skeleton Coast

Visiting Namibia's Skeleton Coast is a once in a lifetime experience to see one of the most inhospitable, yet dramatically beautiful and completely wild places in the world.

There is so much to see in and around the Skeleton Coast from shipwrecks, wind-swept plains, seal colonies, huge canyons, rolling sand dunes and beautiful salt pans. There are fresh water springs dotted around which attract an abundance of wildlife.

Visit the homes of the nomadic Himba people, who still dress and live according to their ancient tradition. There are two ways to experience this incredible part of northern Namibia – by air or road. Helicopter tours are an amazing and unforgettable experience.
