Shipwreck Lodge is located in the famous Skeleton Coast Concession in Namibia’s Skeleton Coast National Park. Over the years, numerous ships have stranded along the Skeleton Coast thanks to its thick fog, rough sea, unpredictable currents and stormy winds. The eco-friendly luxury lodge fits in beautifully with its theme and resembles the shipwrecks that line the beach – but with all the comforts you can wish for.
There are 10 shipwreck-shaped chalets (8 twin / double and 2 family) nestled between the dunes, with views across the sand to the Atlantic Ocean. Each has an en-suite bathroom with indoor showers, as well as its own deck to enjoy the peaceful landscape. All cabins run completely off solar-power – barring the wood-burning fireplaces that are used to keep the night / morning chill out of the air.
At the centre of the camp is the equally innovatively-designed lounge and restaurant with a wraparound deck offering uninterrupted views of your starkly beautiful surroundings. A range of activities are available including game drives in search of desert dwelling fauna, flora and wildlife, quad-biking along the dunes and sand boarding.
