No matter how uninviting the name, the Skeleton Coast is one of the most unique natural highlights in Namibia where the desert dunes meet the ocean. The national park - that includes a seal colony, elephants, rhino and giraffe - is named after the bleached bones that used to wash up on the beach while the whaling industry was still active.
