Covering about a third of Namibia’s coastline, the legendary Skeleton Coast Park stretches 500km from the Ugab River in the south, to the Kunene River in the north. The attraction of the remote Skeleton Coast Park lies essentially in the colour, changing moods and untouched profile of its landscape. Its aura of mystery and impenetrability is due to the many shipwrecks, dense coastal fogs and cold sea breeze by the cold Benguela Current. The landscape in the park ranges from sweeping vistas of windswept dunes to rugged canyons with walls of richly coloured volcanic rock and extensive mountains ranges. After an early breakfast in Swakopmund, we’ll head north along the legendary coastline of the restricted Skeleton Coast Park. Travel past the Zeila shipwreck and onward via Terrace Bay, the last accessible camp before entering the private concession. We’ll venture to Mowe Bay a frontier outpost generally not accessible to tourism and travel past remains of decaying boats, an old Ventura bomber and abandoned equipment leftover from its prospecting past. We pass seal colonies and misty beaches littered with whale bones, driving over shifting sand dunes as we head to Shipwreck Lodge for our next 2 nights.
