Uniquely designed around the enigmatic shipwrecks that line Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, there’s nowhere on the continent quite like Shipwreck Lodge. In fact, there’s nowhere on the continent quite like the Skeleton Coast.
It’s a raw, rugged and impossibly remote slice of African wilderness, where towering dunes and wind-swept plains roll as far as the eye can see, buffeted by the icy Atlantic seas.
But there’s much more to the area than simple isolation. Stay at Shipwreck Lodge and game drive in search of desert-dwelling fauna; discover the enchanting desert flora (succulents and lichens); sit atop the dunes as the sun sinks below the horizon; spend the day beach-combing for whale bones and debris from centuries of shipwrecks; and marvel at the geologically-remarkable Clay Castles. Really, there’s nowhere like it on earth.
The 10 chalets, cleverly designed to resemble shipwrecks, are spread out along the sand dunes. Wake up to spectacular desert views with the sound of waves crashing in the distance and fall asleep to a crackling fire in the stove. Eight cabins come with double or twin beds; two cabins are family units. All cabins have private bathrooms and are equipped with a safe and a wood-burning stove. Each of them has its own deck to enjoy the serene scenery. The design of the lodge was inspired by the many ships that have been wrecked on the Skeleton Coast. A light footprint is emphasised by eco-friendly water and waste management and by using solar-power.
Wi-fi available in the main area but due to the remoteness is often intermittent
