Skeleton Coast Shipwreck Lodge
This unique lodge is located in the famous Skeleton Coast Central Concession between the Hoarusib and Hoanib Rivers in the Skeleton Coast Park, north of Möwe Bay. The lodge is situated on the southern bank of the Huarusib River Mouth, nestled between the dunes with a view of the vast Atlantic Ocean, where the cold Benguela current pushes a refreshing breeze over the shipwreck inspired cabins.
This coastline gets its name from centuries of shipwrecks that line Namibia’s Skeleton Coast. It’s a raw, rugged and impossibly remote slice of African wilderness, where towering dunes and wind-swept plains roll as far as the eye can see.
Luckily for visitors who venture here, there’s much more to the area than stark isolation. Stay at Shipwreck Lodge and set off on a game drive in search of desert-dwelling fauna; discover the enchanting desert flora (succulents and lichens); sit atop the dunes as the sun sinks below the horizon; spend a few hours beach-combing for whale bones and debris from centuries of shipwrecks; and marvel at the geologically-remarkable Clay Castles. There’s simply nowhere like it on earth.
