Shipwreck Lodge Skeleton Coast Highlights

 The Skeleton Coast is Namibia’s least visited National Park making it raw and rugged and entirely empty of tourist traffic, but it is undeniably alluring and unique in its coastal desert way. The Namib meets the Atlantic Ocean in the form of ancient rising dunes, which become shrouded in mist from the sea and blanket the shipwreck-lined coastline with an eerie chill. Each of the 10 rooms at Shipwreck Lodge are designed to look like shipwrecks themselves to blend in with the surroundings. There is Wi-Fi, a swimming pool, a restaurant, and supremely comfortable accommodation with views of the desert sand all the way to the sea.

Sun Safaris Says

  • There are 10 shipwreck-style bedrooms: two family units accommodating children over the age of 6, and eight twins or doubles.  
  • The evenings and early mornings in the desert (especially one on the Atlantic coast) are chilly, while summer days can be very hot, so guests are advised to pack for both temperature extremes.
  • This one-of-a-kind spot can be admired from the wrap-around deck at the centre of the lodge where a relaxing lounge and restaurant are invitingly located. 
  • Access to Shipwreck Lodge is via Mowe Bay, which is 68km south along the coast. Self drivers and fly-in guests alike will be met here by a transfer vehicle, which will complete the journey by road while guests enjoy the pristine surroundings.

Shipwreck Lodge Skeleton Coast Game Viewing and Activities

Incredibly, the Skeleton Coast, which has claimed thousands of ships in the past, is inhabited by elephant, oryx, kudu, giraffe, even lion, and most iconically, Cape fur seals. This region is the only place on earth where desert-adapted lions roam, preying on equally as adapted wildlife, including seals. Activities at Skeleton Lodge include trips along the coast to visit Suiderkus and Karimona shipwrecks, which lie as ruins buried in the sand. Wildlife-orientated activities include game drives in the Skeleton Coast National Park, excursions along the Hoarusib River to track desert-adapted elephant, 4x4 journeys to the seal colony at Mowe Bay, the Clay Castles, and the Hoanib River Delta. Bird watchers arrive at the Skeleton Coast during the summer months when unpredictable rainfall is likely to clear the fog and reveal the migratory species in the area. Tie Shipwreck Lodge in with a Sossusvlei and Etosha safari itinerary and see three wholly unique parts of the world in one country: Namibia.
