"Uniquely designed around the shipwrecks that line Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, there’s nowhere on the continent quite like Shipwreck Lodge. It’s a rustic, sweeping and impossibly remote slice of African wilderness, where dunes and plains roll as far as the eye can see, buffeted by the icy Atlantic seas. Stay here and you can say that you've stayed in some of the most dramatic accommodation out there!"
Shipwreck Lodge is a unique property in a remote and rugged part of the African wilderness, and the first lodge to be built on the coast itself. The unrivalled location within the park offers fantastic opportunities for wildlife viewing and desert adventures. Keep an eye out for lions, elephants and kudu amongst other species.
Each of the 10 rooms have been built to look like the shipwrecks that line the beach, and their innovative design is unlike any other camp. There are eight twin or double rooms, and two cabins can take extra beds for children. All are en suite and solar-powered and there's also a wood burning stove.
In the centre of camp there's an innovatively-designed lounge and restaurant with a wide, wraparound deck and uninterrupted views across the sand all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.
Away from the camp activities are endless. Spend a day exploring the dry riverbeds, learn about the history behind the dramatic shipwrecks that line the mist-enshrouded coastline, and look for tok-tokkie beetles and the unusual plants and lichens that survive in the cold fog here.
