Skeleton Coast and Kunene

The Skeleton Coast was once feared for its mist and moving sandbanks and is the most northerly region of Namibia’s vast stretching coastline.

The Skeleton Coast is considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful places, with its wide belt of coastal sand dunes to the beautiful waters of the Kunene River. The region offers some of the most dramatic scenery in Namibia and makes it a perfect place for the exploratory traveller seeking adventure.

Skeleton Coast Flying Safari

One of the best ways of visiting the most inaccessible and rugged area in Namibia is by flying safari. The Schoeman family, who have all been raised on the Skeleton Coast, act as both pilots and extremely knowledgeable guides for these unique safaris.

Flying low over the amazing Namibian countryside and landing where possible on open ground to view the most spectacular landscape, dunes, shipwrecks, mines and wildlife the region has to offer.

Illona Cross

Born in a small South African town, I have always followed my passion for nature and discovery. After studying Nature Conservation in Pretoria, I was one of the first women to complete a very tough cadetship in the Natal Parks Board. It was here where I cut my teeth in African wildlife management.
