Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp in Namibia, Africa, is slated to welcome its first guests on Aug. 1. In celebration of the camp’s opening, Row Adventures is offering a promotional rate to families traveling with children. From Aug. 1 to Jan. 10, 2015, a four-day safari trip will cost $200 for travelers ages 6 to 16. This works out to be a 65 percent discount.
Only accessible by light aircraft, the Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp consists of eight well-insulated en-suite tents with private shaded outdoor lounges. The camp’s conscious design is low-impact and sensitive to the desert environment. The camp’s main area offers views of a small waterhole, visited occasionally by elephants, oryx and other mammals.
The camp is located in a remote area of Kaokoveld, between with Palmwag area and Namibia’s Skeleton Coast National Park. The camp will serve as a lodge for travelers amidst rugged terrain and extensive local wildlife.
Peter Grubb, founder and president of Row Adventures, has long been fascinated by the Namibian landscape.
“The people, the landscape and the wildlife all combine into an impactful life-enriching experience," said Grubb.
