Located on Namibia’s desolate Skeleton Coast, this unique lodge has been designed around the countless shipwrecks that line this remarkable coastline. The Skeleton Coast National Park is one of Namibia’s most remote regions, home to the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean, towering sand dunes and endless windswept desert – making for an incredible arial view from above.
Raw and rugged, the Skeleton Coast was notorious amongst sailors over past centuries, with the rusted remains of many vessels dotting its unblemished, sandy beaches. The lodge and its 10 guestrooms (including two slightly larger family rooms) were created to reflect the vast and incredible landscape, constructed to resemble the many wrecks nearby. The rooms all have ensuite bathrooms and are solar-powered – except from the wood burning stoves that help keep the cabins warm and cosy during the chilly evenings and early morning. Each room also has a comfortable sofa bed positioned in front of the window and a small study nook where guests will find tea & coffee making facilities and a charging point.
The main lodge also boasts a shipwreck-inspired lounge and dining area as well as a spacious outdoor deck with outstanding views of the landscape and Atlantic Ocean. The lounge has ample seating, including a long, cosy bench covered in comfortable pillows and blankets, large armchairs and – just like the rooms – a wood-burning stove to keep the room warm at night. There are also a few books and board games dotted around the room.
