Skeleton Coast

Skeleton Coast National Park  – This deceitful peninsula, a foggy region of rocky and sandy coastal shallows, dusty shipwrecks and dunes, is long a graveyard for oblivious ships and their sailors, and therefore its prohibitive tag the early Portuguese mariners named it when a ship coming up on shore, the crew’s life was hit by seals. It ranges from Sandwich Harbor, South of Swakopmund, to the Kunene River, which is one of the world’s most uninhibited waterless regions in the Oldest Desert and encompasses about 20,000 sq.km of dunes and gravel plains.
