Skeleton Coast in Namibia

The Skeleton coast is one of our planet’s most beautiful places, which over the past decade has had restricted access to the public.

It is possible to drive as far as Terrace Bay along the Southern Section of the Skeleton Coast National Park an area which includes the enormous seal colony at Cape Cross.

The Northern Section can only be accessed by air on a flying safari, this area has just one operator here offering flying safaris which stay at extremely remote but quite comfortable camps in the National Park. It is wild, desolate, uninhabited and stunningly beautiful, but rather expensive to visit.

Excursions in this area include visits to the clay castles of the Hoarusib River, Rocky Point, the roaring dunes, lichen fields, seal colonies, Himba villages and shipwreck sites. There are also secret water seeps that attract wildlife such as oryx, springbok, giraffe, brown hyena and jackals.

DRY SEASON

June sees warm sunny days and cool nights, through to August. The bush is dry and game viewing excellent. Hot sunny days and warm nights develop in September and through to October, the bush remains dry and vegetation is dwindling. This is the ideal time to visit Namibia. 

When visiting the coastal areas it is worth noting that during winter (June- August) occasionally a condition known as Berg wind occurs, this is a hot dry wind blowing from the inland to the coast and due to desert that lies behind the coast, these winds can develop into sand storms.

green SEASON

By November the temperature increases, days are hot and storm clouds brew whilst light showers begin. December is usually the hottest month, rains become more frequent and the atmosphere quite humid.

January and February are very hot with some occasional rain storms. Game viewing is fairly good. March becomes slightly cooler, occasional rain storms continue

SHOULDER SEASON

April sees the trees fruiting, nights are cooler and days warm with some early morning mist. The bush begins to dry out in May and hence game viewing is improving with comfortable temperatures, this is a more affordable time to visit Namibia.
