HOW TO GET THERE? Daily flights from Johannesburg to Windhoek. Frequent flights from Windhoek into the Skeleton Coast.
SPECIAL INTEREST: Seal colonies that line the endless dramatic shores of the Skeleton Coast are a fascinating sight and if you’re lucky you might see a Brown Hyena or Jackal trying to scavenge a young seal pup.
Almost miraculously it seems, in this stark environment, enormous elephant thrive along with giraffe, lion and brown hyaena. Gemsbok (oryx), springbok, steenbok, scrub hare, and inquisitive ground squirrel are also seen. Entirely different to the rugged mountains and valleys inland, the Skeleton Coast hosts Cape fur seals in their thousands along with black-backed jackals and brown hyaena.
Birds are equally diverse, with regular endemics like Rüppell’s korhaan, Benguela long-billed lark and lark-like bunting. Towards the coast, the bird community changes and tractrac chat can be seen, as well as jaegers and skuas found around the seal colonies..
