Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp Kaokoland
Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is located in one of the most remote corners of Africa, where the desert landscapes of Kaokoland meet the Skeleton Coast the rugged mountains and canyons of the Hoanib River provide a last refuge for some of the continent's most unique wildlife; this is the home of the legendary desert elephant and the last free roaming rhino population on earth. In fact seventy five per cent of Namibia's endemic species inhabit this last bastion of the wilderness.
The Save the Rhino Trust has been involved with rhino conservation in this area since the early eighties, and in partnership with Wilderness Safaris, offer the chance to experience one of the most incredible desert treks in Africa. Camel expeditions, following ancient paths worn into this harsh land by countless generations of desert elephant and rhino, lead you through this timeless landscape; one that few people have ever seen. Experience the wilder side of Africa where only the sporadic roar of lion or cackle of hyena punctuates the silence of the night. Save the Rhino Trust employ professional trackers from the community who travel with us to search for the rare desert-dwelling black rhino.
Hoanib River Camp is the exclusive tented camp close to the Hoanib River is a relaxed haven from where guests explore this wild land on foot, by camel or from the comfort of one of safari vehicles. The camp is powered by solar-powered inverter systems and there are no generators or pumps running whilst guests are in camp. The near-mythical Hoanib River provides a meandering thread of life in this unforgiving land. Lined by hundreds of Ana Trees, whose copious production of pods attracts large herds of antelope, giraffe and elephant, the oasis like river is rated by purists as one of Africa's great wilderness experiences.
