Skeleton Coast 4x4 Expedition
8 Day Skeleton Coast guided self-drive expedition
Departing from Swakopmund, we head to the Ugab gate, the entry point into the Skeleton Coast National Park. From here we continue to Terrace Bay where we fill up our vehicles and then leave civilization behind us for the next 8 days!
As we make our way through the park we put our fully laden vehciles to the test. Riverbeds, soft sand and dunes all stand between us and the iconic Kunene River Mouth. We pass interesting sites along the way as our guide feeds us with information on our surroundings and also gives advice and guidance on how to get the most out of your vehicle in this daunting terreain.
Reaching the Kunene Mouth we get to relax a bit as we make camp for two nights in the majestic dunes. Here we spend some time appreciating the beauty of nature and the peace and tranquility of the desert.
From here we head east along the mighty Kunene through some of the most deceitful dunes in Namibia, a real test to the drivers, co-pilots and vehicles! We then turn south through the Hartmansvalley, uniquely beautiful and desolate.
Our tour ends at the little Himba village of Puros, where we will be on the lookout for the desert adapted Elephants of the Hoarusib river.
