Skeleton Coast Safari, 3 nights

The iconic Skeleton Coast Fly-In Safari four-day safari leaves Windhoek in the morning, following the Skeleton Coast from Conception Bay to the Huab Valley during the first day.  The second day continues up the coast as far as the Hoarusib Valley, and the third day as far as the Kunene River which forms the northern border of Namibia.  The safari ends in Windhoek on the fourth day, arriving just before sunset.  This is a unique opportunity to explore this remote region of Namibia in the company of some of the country’s most experienced guides.


Day 1

You will be met in the arrivals hall of Windhoek Hosea Kutako Airport by an ATI representative who will offer a thorough briefing of your whole holiday and go through your marked map, vouchers, and itinerary with you. Your pilot will meet you here and then escort you to the domestic terminal and through security to your light aircraft. Your flight will be shared with other passengers. After landing you will proceed to Kuidas camp in the Huab River Valley. Ancient rock engravings are found amongst the rocks within walking distance of the camp.


Day 2

After breakfast you will explore the colorful red lava and yellow sandstone of the Huab River environs. After lunch at Kuidas camp you will fly along the coast to Terrace Bay in the Skeleton Coast Park. The most prominent shipwrecks along this part of the coast are the Montrose and Henrietta. At the coast you will access the roaring dunes by Land Rover before returning to the aircraft and continuing to Leylandsdrift camp in the Hoarusib Valley.


Day 3

After breakfast embark on a scenic drive along the Hoarusib Valley to visit a settlement of the nomadic Himba people. You might be lucky enough to come across the desert-dwelling elephant who frequent this valley. From here continue north along the Skeleton Coast by aircraft to the Kunene River. The Kaiu Maru shipwreck and pieces from old sailing vessels lie scattered along this part of the coast.  After lunch you will continue through the mountains and dunes of the Hartmann Valley, reaching Kunene River camp in the late afternoon.
