Property Spotlight - Hoanib Skeleton Coast, Namibia

It won't be too much longer until we are welcoming all of you back to our beautiful African continent. Before then, we would like to share some of our personal experiences from the various lodges we have travelled to. If any of these lodges grab your fancy and you would like to include them in your upcoming travels to Africa, feel free to contact us.


We are often asked to include The Skeleton Coast into the majority of Namibian itineraries as our guests are intrigued by the potential of seeing hundreds of shipwrecks scatered along th coast. This is sadly not the case for a number of reasons, constant shifting of sand dunes, areas not accessible due to thick sand or being located in private nature reserves, therefore, the best way to view this famous coastline is either via a scenic flight or flying into remote areas and lodges like Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp for an all-inclusive experience.


One of the best ways to view this famous coastline is either via scenic flight or charter flights into this remote location.

Hoanib Skeleton Coast camp can be combined with a self-drive itinerary so don't let the charter flights discourage you. It can be a wonderful break from all the driving and seeing Namibia from a different perspective.

Namibia is the perfect self-drive destination, but the destination needs time so please don't ask us to try and squeeze everything into 4 or 5 days. Namibia is NOT a big 5 game destination, yes Etosha has great game viewing as well as parts of Namibia being home to desert-adapted animals, but this country is really about the exceptional landscapes, extreme amounts of space, and most importantly, the chance to get away from it all.


Feel free to contact us any time at info@zafaris.co.za for recommendations on how to include Hoanib Skeleton Coast into your itinerary or, any other destination that you may be interested in.
