Skeleteon Coast

About Skeleteon Coast

The Skeleton Coast and its hinterland is a landscape of haunting beauty, a vast area of rolling dunes, expanses of uninhabited desert plains, fossil beds, unique geological formations, desert-adapted animals, and strange vegetation. Skeleton Coast comprises many hotels and safaris camps/sites. One of the finest lodges found in the area is the Grootberg Lodge.

The purpose of the Grootberg Lodge is not only to offer professional service, great surroundings, extremely good food, well-trained guides, and exceptionally good local management but, at the same time, to benefit the local community with revenue generated by the lodge.

One of the luxurious campsites in Skeleton Coast is the Mowani Mountain Camp found in Damaraland in Namibia. The camp is distinguished by thatched dome-shaped structures which represent an almost mirror-image of the granite boulders amongst which they are built. Mowani is taken from the word M’Wane, meaning ‘Place of God’, indicating a high level of peace and tranquillity. Click here for more information about Mowani Mountain Camp.

Best time to visit

Skeleton Coast can be visited throughout the year, but the ideal time is during the warmer months from October to March. These months see a little bit of rain, which keeps the skies clear. Mornings are less foggy and it’s warmer at night than in the winter months. However, wildlife viewing in Etosha NP is less productive at that time, but this is only relevant if visiting both parks.


It is not unusual to see the otherwise very shy, but handsome, brown hyena trotting along the beach searching for beached seal carcasses. It is also worth looking out into the sea for a glimpse of the rare Heaviside's dolphins. The mouth of the Uniab River attracts some wildlife coming in from Kaokoland, further inland. This includes oryx, springbok, and greater kudu.
