One of the most remote and isolated places Namibia has to offer, the camp lies on the border of the jaw dropping Skeleton Coast National Park: a land of endless sand and rocky outcrops. The ultimate excuse to become lost in a forgotten world, the camp is far removed from the reality of modern day, and can only be reached by light aircraft. The area is home to unique and captivating wildlife that guests can discover through thrilling game drives and nature walks; watch out for one of the largest populations of fascinating desert adapted elephant, which are sure to be a highlight.

Small and exclusive, the camp offers only 8 tented units, 7 of which feature twin beds and one of which is a family tent. All accommodation includes outdoor decking areas, shaded from the strong Namibian sun and en-suite bathrooms. The views from camp are breath-taking, with stargazing at night an incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience.
