The Skeleton Coast & Damaraland Excursion
Flight from Swakopmund airfield. We continue our flight via the Brandberg and Damaraland to Hobatere Lodge. Hobatere derives it’s name from the Damara language meaning “this place is good for me”. Situated on the western border of the Etosha National Park, the farm is approximately 32 000 hectare in size.

The park in the northern Namib Desert stretches from the Ugab River in the south to the Kunene River, which forms the northern border with Angola. This region is generally cold and windy with mist in the mornings and evenings. The Skeleton Coast is littered with whalebones, shipwrecks and remains of sailors and explorers. Further flight past Torra Bay, Palgrave point, Toscanini to Cape Cross seal reserve. During the November/December breeding season as many as 200 000 seals gather at Cape Cross.
