  Skeleton Coast
by diageva

"Strictly no entrance into Skeleton Coast Park other than official entrance gate" that is what you will read in the maps. All along the coast you will find "No Entry" signals.

A infinitely white desert sand landscape where only hyenas, jackals, birds and seal subsist. Once you are getting near the coast you are receive by a dense coastal fog and cold sea breezes caused by the cold Benguela ocean current from the Arctic. A beautiful white desolate shores with shipwrecks remains. A coast where you are not aloud to move freely and where you are advice of the dangerous of getting near the coast because of the flood tide.

Roads where 4x4 are nead and where you must take winter clothes cause it can be very cold. I was with english people and they all agree that we where infront of a english typical fog landscape.
