The Wilderness Skeleton Coast camp that was damaged by fire last year will not be replaced at that site. The agreement with the government for Wilderness to use that land is close to expiring and will not be renewed. However, Wilderness was successful in acquiring new land, in a new agreement. Here is the announcement - just made this weekend:
"..Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp will be located adjacent to the magnificent Hoanib River in the northern reaches of the Palmwag Concession. Activities (game drives and walking) will access the game rich riverbed (elephant, giraffe, lion, oryx), the plains, river valleys and hillsides to the south (black rhino, oryx, mountain zebra, springbok) and most importantly the downstream reaches of the Hoanib River in the Skeleton Coast National Park. This last area has a very important seep and water system that is frequented by many different game species, as it cuts through a spectacular dune field and accesses the Atlantic Ocean coastline. We expect that the new camp will be a 9-roomed Classic camp, with 8 twins and 1 family room.."
