Skeleton Coast

The Skeleton Coast is dramatic, wild and unbelievably beautiful - like nowhere else in Africa, this area is quite simply one of the most breathtaking and unique places on earth. The Atlantic Ocean crashes onto a shoreline where seals congregate in colonies of thousands, against a backdrop of sand dunes taller than skyscrapers. The Skeleton Coast is a must-see for any Namibia itinerary. 
The main attraction of the Skeleton Coast is the fact that the entire coastline here is so utterly different from anywhere else in the world. It is such a unique place that it is actually very difficult to explain the appeal.  

At first glance the Skeleton Coast appears somewhat empty and haunting, but closer inspection reveals an ecosystem full of life - colonies of seals mix with flamingos and pelicans, whilst further north long-haired brown hyena hunt with jackals and the occasional beach-based lion pride.  This is wildlife viewing quite unlike anywhere else in Africa.
