Questions & Answers

Destination Overview:

Shore Shark Fishing Namibia, the fishing takes place from the beach along the Skeleton Coast, so called due to the amount of whale and sea bones that litter the shore line. The coast sits in the cold, nutrient rich Benguela current of the Southern Atlantic and that, coupled with the hot Namib desert that extends the entire length of the Namibian coastline, means frequent morning fog, dropping the temperature down to comfortable levels. Shipwrecks adorn the coastline, including some quite recent ones which make for some amazing photographs.
