    Skeleton Coast

    "Strictly no entrance into Skeleton Coast Park other than official entrance gate" that is what you will read in the maps. All along the coast you will find "No Entry" signals.

    A infinitely white desert sand landscape where only hyenas, jackals, birds and seal subsist. Once you are getting near the coast you are receive by a dense coastal fog and cold sea breezes caused by the cold Benguela ocean current from the Arctic. A beautiful white desolate shores with shipwrecks remains. A coast where you are not aloud to move freely and where you are advice of the dangerous of getting near the coast because of the flood tide.

    Roads where 4x4 are nead and where you must take winter clothes cause it can be very cold. I was with english people and they all agree that we where infront of a english typical fog landscape.

    Twyfelfontein is for me a very TOP Namibia. The set is really breathtaking.

    I went is a really beautiful day of incredible stunning blue sky that with the red of the stones of Twyfelfontein makes a unique place … there you can find the largest collections of rock engravings in Africa, so the set is complete.

    You have to pay a little fee and a local guide will show you the engravings of giraffes, ostrich, zebras, rhinoceros, kudus, ... men, women ... all under this wonderful sky and over this incredible beautiful red stone that was proclaimed a national monument in 1952.

    The age of rock engravings has been established to be from 2 000 to 6 000 years old while some painted pieces have been dated up to 27 000 years old

    Take a bit of time to see the Skeleton Coast.
    This is a great place to see some of the shipwrecks for which this area is famous. It is also a place to spot the elusive elephants that live in this area unfortunately I did not...
