Named after the tragedies that beset many a captain and his crew along Namibia’s trecherous Atlantic coast, the Skeleton Coast lies in the far north west of Namibia.
Long forgotten ships lie strewn along the ghostly foggy coastline. The Skeleton Coast is one of the most inhospitable and least visited places on the planet. Four wheel drive visitors may view part of the southern Skeleton Coast, however, fear of getting stuck in the soft powdery sand and running out of water halt their progress further north.
The best way to view this part of the world is by a fly-in safari. Flying in a light aircraft over the grand and colourful dunes, deep valleys and rugged mountains, up along the shipwrecked coastline allows for an awesome spectacle found nowhere else in the world.
