Dunes and ocean from the air, Skeleton Coast, Namibia

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.

Jackie Devereux

I was born in Zimbabwe. With a dad who was in the police force, we moved from place to place. I have always been passionate about travel. My grandparents mentioned that our ancestors set off from the Horn of Africa – Ethiopia – looking for better cattle pastures. They ended up settling in the south-eastern hills of Zimbabwe, in the Great Zimbabwe area.

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. My desire to see more led me to work as a guide for AndBeyond, first in South Africa, then in Tanzania as the company expanded. Here, I lived and worked in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro, guiding and running safari camps.

Aged five and with my Curious George toy safely tucked under my arm, I set off with my family to travel around Europe in an orange VW minibus. Looking back on the adventures we had along the way, I now know that this was where my love for travel and exploring began.
