Shipwreck Lodge

Skeleton Coast

Famous for the great winds and strong currents, many explorers’ ships were wrecked on this coast, hence the very fitting name of Shipwreck Lodge. This stunning lodge has been designed to resemble the shipwrecks that line Namibia’s beachfront on which the lodge sits on. Each of the rooms is solar powered and has a private en-suite bathroom, along with a wood burning stove to keep you warm on the chilly evenings. The intricately designed lounge and restaurant overlooks the sweeping sand dunes all the way over to the Atlantic Ocean. Despite the apparently arid landscape, game viewing at Namibia’s Shipwreck Lodge is definitely not limited. Desert-adapted elephants, giraffe and lion roam in the surrounding areas, whilst the ocean houses Cape fur seals, and birdlife is abundant. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a brown hyena or two.

Reasons we love Shipwreck Lodge

  • A mix of ecosystems attracts varied wildlife – spot desert adapted lion, elephants, kudu and seals.
  • To one side of the lodge you will find far-reaching golden sand, whilst the desert in the opposite direction is swathed in greenery, with marshland and forest.
  • The lodge is situated at the mouth of the River Hoarusib, on desert sands and with views as far as the Atlantic Ocean.
