Nat. West Coast Recreation Area

National West Coast Recreation Area

This is the 200km stretch of coastline between the Swakop and Ugab rivers. The lichen fields are found here extensively. They depend on coastal fog for survival, are extremely slow growing and are destroyed when vehicles drive over them. Visitors are cautioned that off road driving is not allowed in the National West Coast Recreation Area. Along the coast at Mile 14, 72, 108 and Jakkalsputz are campsites providing basic amenities for anglers.
