Openspace Tours is a small, owner-operated tour company based out of Swakopmund, Namibia. We focus on the coastal region north of Swakopmund including the Skeleton Coast Park and the inland environment of the Namib Desert. Our aim is to provide a closer look at this amazing and unique area.
The Skeleton Coast is the last coastal desert environment where the lion, elephant and rhino still exist.There are several other species that also migrate through this region making itan area of great concern of conservationists in Namibia.Our trips are not game drives neither are they aimed at finding creatures in the desert. We do see wildlife but moreso we look at the ecosystem as a whole from past, present and into the future,
The South Atlantic Ocean and the Benguela Current are major contributors to Namibia’s weather. Our trips also include discussions about the weather patterns and oceanic currents.This helps to provide a complete synopsis of the Skeleton Coast and Namib Desert environment.
Lastly, wee introduce local and national economic factors which have influenced the surrent state of the coast.What do business interests, conservation plans, government policies and the tourism sectors have in store for the future of the Skeleton Coast. We do our best to address these issues while enjoying the vastness and splendor the area has to offer.
