Skeleton Coast Park


Skeleton Coast National Park. Skeleton Coast National Park is a national park located in northwest Namibia, and has the most inaccessible shores, dotted with shipwrecks. There are few landscapes that define the wilds of Namibia as well as the Skeleton Coast Park. This great stretch of endless sand dunes and crashing Atlantic waves runs for no less than 500 kilometers from top to bottom.

It’s delineated by the spot where the arid deserts of the inland meet the ocean, and famed as one of the most dangerous sections of shoreline in the world.There are countless rusting carcasses of old tankers and skiffs, fishing boats and convoy ships to testify to this.

Tales of perished sailors still abound too, making this very much the domain of the wandering Namid elephant and the stalking hyena – not humans.
