Skeleton Coast National Park

Encompassing the northern part of the Namibian coastline and extending a bit into southern Angola, Skeleton Coast National Park is known for its inaccessible shores and rough waters. The park was named for the hulls of wrecked ships found washed up along the shore, as well as the bleached whale and seal bones found there during the years the whaling industry was active there.

Skeleton Coast National Park has some interesting attractions, including the Agate Mountain salt pans, the clay castles of the Hoarasib, and the large Cape Fur Seal colony at Cape Fria. The inland riverbeds are home to a variety of wildlife, including giraffes, lions, baboons, rhinoceros, springbok and elephants.

Information & Facts

Language

English is the official language, but many people also speak Afrikaans and German. There are also several indigenous languages spoken, mainly in the rural areas.

Money

The official currency is the Namibian Dollar (NAD) divided into 100 cents. Its value is equal to the South African Rand, which is also accepted as legal currency in Namibia. Major credit cards are accepted. Travellers cheques and foreign currency can be exchanged at any bank or bureau de change, though cash is more expensive to exchange than travellers cheques. ATMs are available in larger towns only.
