Uniquely designed around the enigmatic shipwrecks that line Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, there’s nowhere on the continent quite like Shipwreck Lodge and the Skeleton Coast. A beautifully remote slice of African wilderness, where towering dunes and wind-swept plains roll as far as the eye can see, buffeted by the icy Atlantic seas.

About the Lodge
Shipwreck Lodge was built to match the remarkable scenery of the Skeleton Coast, and each of the 10 rooms has been constructed to resemble the shipwrecks that line the beach.
There are eight twin or double rooms, and two cabins can take extra beds if you’re bringing the kids, all ensuite and solar-powered. Well, apart from the wood-burning stove but on the chilly evenings and mornings, it’s most definitely a welcome addition!
The centre of camp boasts an innovatively designed lounge and restaurant, with a wide deck and uninterrupted views all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.
