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.more
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.more
There is not that kind of nightlife in such remote place, when the night comes it is the time for camping and resting and listen to the night sounds of the desert. Please be aware that visitors must leave the park before sunset.
Like most of Namibia also here you can have very nice self drive in the park. But some remote areas are not accessible and flying safari will be needed to get to those places.
The desert is always very danger place, canyons, snakes, other animals and most of all, the heat, water are essential for surviving. Why else they call it Skeleton Coast? Go deep into the desert and you will find the remains of those who didn't survive.
Please be aware that some remote areas are not even accessible and needed special permission and it can be arrange only with special safari operators and guides.
Favorite thing: The Skeleton Coast Park is very unique place on earth with its own special climate, nature and ecological status. Unique animals that learn to survive on the harsh conditions of cold nights and hot days.
