Set to open in Summer 2018, 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. If the shipwrecks at the lodge aren’t enough, then head to Möwe Bay where you’ll find a number of impressive remains. Excursions can also be arranged to the seal colony at Möwe Bay, the nearby Himba villages and to Rocky Point for fishing or the remarkable roaring dunes.
