A UNIQUE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE: THE SKELETON COAST
Known as "The Land God Made in Anger" by Namibia's San Tribe, the "Skeleton Coast" was also the title of John Henry Mark's book that archived the shipwreck of the Dunedin Star.
This treacherous coastline was once scattered with the bones of seals and whales washed ashore, resembling the mythical ‘ends of the earth’. The 500km land is also a grave to multiple shipwrecks, however, it is home to various creatures like cape fur seals, lions, giraffes, and elephants. It is a historical and natural destination for any adventure seeker.
The Shipwreck Lodge Skeleton Coast hasn't let the history of the coast deter them, instead, they used it as inspiration to create a truly unique, high-end travel experience for all travelers.
