Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp

Explore Namibia’s Kaokoveld, Palmwag wilderness and iconic Skeleton Coast

Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp sits where two ephemeral tributaries of the Hoanib River meet in one of the most remote corners of Namibia’s Kaokoveld. Its location between the scenic Palmwag wilderness and the iconic Skeleton Coast National Park makes it ideal for exploring the beautiful northwest of Namibia.

Accommodation at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is in 8 absolutely beautiful suites, decorated in soft natural colours. Large, comfortable beds look out onto rugged ochre hills, while every suite has a furnished, shaded deck to appreciate the silence and majesty of your surroundings.
