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.
