Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is a gem in the heart of remote, rugged Namibia, surrounded by little more than breathtaking scenery and the odd desert elephant.
This exceptional camp is located in a broad valley at the confluence of two tributaries of the dry Hoanib River in the northern part of the private Palmwag Concession. It thus straddles the Palmwag area and the iconic Skeleton Coast National Park, in one of the most remote areas of the Kaokoveld.
Namibia’s Skeleton Coast is an enchanting mix of evocative shipwrecks and deserted ghost towns, enormous plains and dry riverbeds, and desert elephants, endangered black rhinos and fascinating desert-adapted wildlife. The region is also still home to the semi-nomadic Himba people, who use thousands of years of accumulated knowledge to survive in a sometimes harsh land.
Hoanib Camp consists of seven luxurious tents, and one family unit, each comprising stylish en-suite bedrooms with shaded outdoor decks. Surrounded by rugged hills, the camp looks out over stunning, starkly beautiful scenery, and offers guests all the luxuries and amenities to ensure an unforgettable stay.
Some of the highlights of a stay at Hoanib include taking in the vast, remote, isolated wilderness of Namibia, as well as special sightings of Namibia’s distinctive desert-adapted wildlife, including elephant, cheetah, springbok, lion, brown hyena and oryx. The seal colonies that line the endless dramatic shores of the Skeleton Coast also make for fascinating viewing.
