Skeleton Coast Holidays
The barren windswept Skeleton Coast is amongst the most unusual and dramatic coastlines in the world. Covering an area of two million hectares along the northern Namibian coastline, it is named after the numerous shipwrecks and giant whale skeletons that litter the wild, eerie and desolate landscape. There is rich bird and sea life including cape fur seal colonies and inland desert elephants, oryx, giraffe, brown hyeana and lion can all be seen.
