To start planning your holiday to Leylandsdrift Camp


Only accessible through fly-in, Leylandsdrift Camp is located in the remote region of the Skeleton Coast on the confluence of two seasonal river valleys. Offering breathtaking views over the Hoarusib Valley, this rustic camp offers comfort throughout.

Bordering the Skeleton Coast National Park, Leylandsdrift Camp is found in the heart of the Kunene region and is usually used as the second stop on the Schoemans Skeleton Coast Flying Safari. This area is both remote and spectacular with views over a river valley that has been known to be frequented by desert-adapted animals such as elephant, lion and even a small number of black rhino.

The camp itself is simple with each tent having been built on raised wooden decks in order to make the most out of the stunning vistas. Each tent comes with en-suite bathroom facilities with a bucket shower, a basin with fresh running water and flush toilets. Meals are served in the main camp central area with sundowners and evening drinks enjoyed around a campfire.

Leylandsdrift is located in a beautiful area for exploring. Drives into the Hoarusib River Valley offer a chance to find some local wildlife species searching for shade and water, as well as some birds that live in the area.
