Whilst the surroundings might seem desolate and inhospitable, a landscape littered with shipwrecks, the hospitality at Shipwreck Lodge is warm and friendly. Together with your guide you will be able to explore the sand dunes and coastline in Namibia's least visited national park, the Skeleton Coast.

This unique lodge was inspired by the shipwrecks that dot the coastline, their influence is evident in the design. Each of the wreck-inspired cabins has windows looking out towards the ocean, an everchanging vista as the mist rises. Cabins are equipped with twin or double beds and two larger cabins cater for families. Each is en-suite and has a woodburner to keep things cosy. 

The main building is the central feature of the camp with its expansive wrap-around viewing deck. Depending on where you look you'll have sweeping views of the moody Atlantic Ocean or the ever-changing sand dunes. Here you'll find the lounge and dining room along with the bar. A woodburner keeps it nice and warm and makes it the perfect spot to sink into a comfy chair and enjoy conversation with other guests. 

The Skeleton Coast National Park, all 6,000 sq miles of it, is home to desert elephants, lions, black rhinos, giraffe and an abundance of seals. However, it's usually not the wildlife that draws visitors here. It's the remoteness, the feeling of untouched landscapes, and being the only ones for miles around - it does give you a shipwrecked feeling. It's the perfect place to escape from it all and immerse yourself in the experience. A wonderful special place, quite unlike anywhere else.
