Why Shipwreck Lodge?

Skeleton Coast National Park, named after the old shipwrecks that litter this stretch of Africa, is a mysterious & remote region in Namibia where enormous sand dunes & the roaring Atlantic Ocean meet.

Experience Here you will find Skeleton Coast Camp – the only camp situated in the national park & home to the desert-dwelling elephants as well as the elusive desert-adapted lion & brown hyena.

With nearly 250 species of birdlife & the oldest (& strangest) desert plant on earth, the Skeleton Coast offers a truly peculiar & off-the-beaten-track safari experience.

Stay There are only 10 unusual & innovative cabins that have been constructed to resemble the shipwrecks that line the beach. Two of these cabins are large enough to take extra beds – ideal for families travelling with young children.

Each luxury cabin features an en-suite bathroom, wood-burning stove for chilly evenings.

The central area comprises an innovatively designed lounge & dining area with a large wrap-around deck offering panoramic views across the sand all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.

Activities Shipwreck Lodge offers exciting & unusual safari activities, including scenic flights in search of bleached whale bones & shipwrecks & cultural trips to meet the nomadic Himba people known for applying the reddish-brown powder to their skin with butter.

Other exciting activities are 4x4 drives to find desert-adapted wildlife, day trips to Mowe Bay seal colonies & the Suiderkruis Shipwreck as well as sundowner drives to the roaring sand dunes of the Namib desert.

Dune boarding, quad bike trips & romantic beach lunches can also be arranged.
