Shipwreck Lodge, situated amongst dunes with views of the Atlantic Ocean, promises to be an exclusive destination. The shipwrecks that are scattered along the coastline inspired the design of the lodge that will be opening in June 2018.
It is located in the famous Skeleton Coast Park between the Huarusib and Hoanib rivers, only 45 km north of Möwe Bay. On the way to Flamingo Pools guests can explore remnants of the Suiderkus and the Karimona shipwrecks, as well as the abandoned Westies diamond mine and the remains of a Ventura Bomber.
Excursions by vehicle will take you to the Oasis water point at the end of the Roaring Dunes. Visit the Clay Castles, a natural geological formation where you may spot desert elephant, lion and brown hyaena. Find traces of the San People’s ancient campsites in the Hoanib River Delta where wildlife flourishes.
From your sheltered deck at the lodge watch the waves crashing onto the isolated beach and experience a surreal sense of being suspended in time as the mist rolls in from the ocean. Each chalet, shaped like a shipwreck, has a wood-burning stove which adds extra atmosphere and comfort on chilly days.
