The Skeleton Coast Camp is a comfortable permanent tented camp with six guest rooms, each with en suite flush toilets and showers. The interiors of the tents are in keeping with the environment and the 'shipwrecked' feel of this coastline. Built on decking and raised off the ground, each tent has a veranda area with private view. The main area consists of a comfortable lounge and bar with a small library and dining area overlooking the dunes.
Little Ongava Camp was amazing. It would have been nice to have 3 nights there as it would give one time to really enjoy the camp itself. Serra Cafema and Skeleton Coast Camp also wonderful. Jonathon and Kallie were our guides respectively and both had just an encyclopedic knowledge. Our return from Skeleton Coast to Windhoek was a little long in that we flew to Palmwag, Ongava, Windhoek International and then Eros. It was almost 6 hrs travel time. But we understand it is difficult to arrange transport with so many itineraries t o accommodate.
Mombo was amazing. I celebrated my birthday there and they provided a beautiful private dinner for Dave and myself. Never to be forgotten! Zarafa , also excellent. It was nice to be in a smaller camp following Mombo which seemed to have so much staff, that there were always people around. Alex is a great Manager at Zarafa.
Toka Leya was also lovely. The staff were great. We had met a young woman who worked in the shop at Victoria Falls hotel while we were on our last safari. We have kept i n touch with her since then '¦ She arranged a border pass and met us at the camp. The staff were amazing to her as we were delayed arriving and they gave her lunch and made her feel welcome. Dave inquired if it would be at all possible for us to go with her back to Zim to see her home..They arranged it all with Wilderness. She was so happy. We were able to visit with her in her home and she was so very very proud to show it to us. We in North America take so much for granted!
And then on to Chiawa. We absolutely loved Chiawa. It was the perfect camp at which to end our safari. We admit we were a little overdosed on game drives and to have the option of the river cruises was just the best. Sascha and Tam were wonderful We did 2 night drives with Sascha and he gave us 2 lessons on the stars in the southern sky. ..fabulous!Read More
