Skeleton Coast

The amazing Skeleton Coast has a most dramatic and extraordinary landscape, so called because it is littered with the skeletons both of shipwrecked vessels, and of beached whales. From here you can travel into the Namib Desert, and explore the wildlife and culture of this sparsely populated region.
