THE SKELETON COAST HOLIDAYS

The Skeleton Coast is so named due to the bones from whaling and sealing that lay scattered along the length of the coast. Known as 'The Land God Made in Anger' by the indigenous population and as 'The Gates of Hell' by the Portugese, it doesn't sound like the most inviting destination we will readily admit.

The sand dunes combine with both mountains and canyons, and through this landscape the unique desert-adapted elephants roam, as well as the black rhino, lions, giraffe, zebra, cheetahs and many other species. The coast itself is home to colonies of seabirds and Cape fur seals in abundance.

The Skeleton Coast National Park extends between two rivers, the Kunene in the north, and then 500km to the south, the Ugab.

Offshore there are killer whales, dolphins and humpback whales. To the north of the park there are several species of turtles, and also crocodiles that follow the Kunene down to the coast. Bird life is abundant, with well over 200 species recorded in the park.
