Luxury Hotels in Namibia

The Skeleton Coast is the definition of remote, and as a result there is a noticeable dearth of 6* deluxe properties, but the series of basic camps, scenically located at intervals along the coast, are high on charisma. At the other end of the spectrum are the Wolwedans properties, a collection of small, stylish safari camps scattered around the expansive NamibRand Nature Reserve. In the game viewing regions of Etosha & Damaraland we recommend a clutch of stylish safari lodges to suit different budgets:
