Shipwreck Lodge, Skeleton Coast

Deluxe - £££££


Hidden in the Skeleton Coast National Park, tucked between the rivers Hoarusib and Hoanib you’ll find Shipwreck Lodge.

This is a stunning setting with even more stunning chalets, which are all crafted to look like shipwrecks – a quirky but clever arrangement popular with tourists from all over the world.

Sitting along the sand dunes are 10 cabins, all of which are solar-powered and eco-friendly. Boasting en-suite facilities, these individual cabins have fantastic views of the sea and come with a wood burner for those colder nights.

They also have their own decking area, giving you plenty of space to enjoy the stunning scenery and watch for passing buccaneers!


In the main lodge, you’ll find the restaurant and dining room, again with a freestanding log burner that enhances the atmosphere of the room.

The food is traditional and delicious, offering plenty of choices. You can sit inside or out on the deck to enjoy your meal or drinks. Alternatively, take lunch on the beach if that appeals and share it with a passing crab!

There are a number of excursions you can join from Shipwreck Lodge, including a day-trip in a 4×4 to the Hoarusib River, where you can see the geological wonder that is the Clay Castles. Keep your eyes peeled for lions and desert elephants.
