Skeleton Coast

The Skeleton Coast is a stretch of coast in northern Namibia, famous for the numerous skeletal shipwrecks embedded in the shores and the almost inhospitable, yet incredibly beautiful, desert that surrounds them. We organise fly-in safaris to the Skeleton Coast - using light aircraft to hop around you will spend each night in a different area at small permanent camps.

Namibia self-drive holiday

A superb, exciting and absolutely enjoyable trip! ...Every day brought a new adventure.
