Location & Setting

The shipwreck-inspired lodge is built among dunes where the vast Namib desert and the turbulent Atlantic Ocean meet. The wreckage of numerous ships that perished on these perilous shores can be seen in the surrounding area. It is in Skeleton Coast National Park, a 16,845 square kilometer protected wilderness area that lies to the north of Swakopmund.


Shipwreck Lodge consists of eight twin cabins and two family cabins. Each cabin has a private veranda and en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water. The cabins are elevated, which not only preserves the area's delicate ecosystem but also offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding dunes and ocean.


The central lodge features a lounge, bar, and dining area with an outside deck to admire the dunes and ocean. There is a fire pit where tales of the day's adventures can be shared of their adventures. Wi-Fi is available in the lodge's main areas. Beach lunches, dinners, and drives at dusk are ideal for connecting with this wild land.
