    There are plenty of wildlife in the park. Most famous are the desert elephants but the park has lots of other animals such rhinos, lions, many antelopes and others. Sure place to find animals is where the water is. Rivers and water holes.

    The Skeleton Coast Park itself starting a bit further north from Cape Cross on the road C34 where there will be park gate. In the park itself you really get into the wilderness, there are no facilities and such. Visitors to the park can enter at sunrise and must leave before sunset.

    Cape Cross

    Cape Cross seal colony is about an hour drive to the north from Swakopmund. You only stop here because everybody who drive here does it, but to be honest it wasn't my favourite place to visit in the park or country.

    Getting your truck out of there!!

    Stuck in the sand


    In the morning when we decided to leave the Skeleton Coast we realised that our truck was well and truly stuck in the sand!
    It took several people and several attempts to push the truck and to lay wooden boards to get us out of there!

    We were delighted when eventually we were on our way - we didn't want to be skeletons on the coast.

    Looking out to the Atlantic Ocean

    Skeleton Coast beaches


    The seas along the Skeleton Coast are a very small section of the Atlantic Ocean.
    These waters have taken many lifes, the sea is so rough and many a boat has been shipwrecked along here - some of the shipwrecks are still visible.

    Deserted Coastline

    As I already said the Skeleton Coast is so atmospheric, windey and cold!
    The beaches are deserted, you can look either way and see mile upon mile of sand.
