The Skeleton Coast, begins to the north of the Orange River and continues across the Kunene River some 200 km into Angola.

Named after of the skeletal remains of numerous ships that were wrecked along this unforgiving coastline, the Skeleton Coast Park is one of the earth’s most inhospitable, but hauntingly beautiful places – it is wild, desolate and deserted.

The coast boasts everything from roaring sand dunes, windswept plains, towering canyons, and salt pans to seal colonies, and it is one of the most productive fishing grounds in the world. In addition, fresh-water springs permeate through barren sands to create desert oases that sustain pockets of wildlife.
