Describing Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, Tatler editors said, "This place is all about the location, in the wildest, driest of deserts where elephants and oryx roam over sand dunes. But it’s also about design – polished concrete and glass and the cleverest, most visually stunning tents you’ve ever seen. It is, quite simply, out of this world".
Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is located in the remote Palmwag Concession, straddling the Palmwag area and the Skeleton Coast National Park.
