Namibia is such a diverse and fascinating country. The Skeleton Coast is the focus of our journey to a vast, remote region in the north west known as the Kunene. The absolute highlight is the three days at Hoanib Camp, an isolated mountainous wilderness with desert-adapted wildlife and flora, and a unique chance to experience the dramatic shores of the Skeleton Coast with seal colonies and shipwrecks.
Our journey ranges from a conservation reserve supporting endangered cheetahs to the Palmwag Concession in Damaraland, where the largest free-ranging population of black rhino are being protected in the Save the Rhino programme. One highlight is the three days spent at Hoanib Camp, a unique lodge in the remote desert mountains of the Skeleton Coast. Our lodges have been hand-picked after extensive research. They are well-run, comfortable and typical of their surroundings. During the journey we always stay at least two nights at the lodge to enjoy activities particular to each region. The lodges are small and often cater just for us. Our guide/driver, Siggi Straube, is from Namibia, a top-rate guide and photographer. The local lodge guides are well trained and their knowledge of fauna and flora is excellent.
The group is small, maximum 10 guests. We travel in a coach well built for the terrain and comfortable. Internal flights are with private charters. Overnight flights are with South African Airways.
