About Shipwreck Lodge

Famous for the great winds and strong currents, many explorers' ships were wrecked on this coast, hence the very fitting name of Shipwreck Lodge. This stunning brand-new lodge has been designed to resemble the shipwrecks that line the beachfront on which the lodge sits on. Each of the rooms is solar powered and has a private en-suite bathroom, along with a wood burning stove to keep you warm on the chilly evenings. The intricately designed lounge and restaurant overlooks the sweeping sand dunes all the way over to the Atlantic Ocean.

Despite the apparently arid landscape, game viewing at Shipwreck lodge is definitely not limited. Desert-adapted elephants, giraffe and lion roam in the surrounding areas, whilst the ocean houses Cape fur seals, and birdlife is abundant. If you're lucky, you may even spot a brown hyena or two.

Location

The lodge is located on the southern bank of the Huarusib River Mouth, on the famous Skeleton Coast in Namibia.

How to get there

It is possible to get a flight from the capital of Namibia, Windhoek, where a 4x4 can be arranged to collect you.

Alternatively if you're on a self-drive trip, you must make your way to Mowe Bay, where you can leave your car and be met for a guided 4x4 ride to the lodge.

When to go

Shipwreck Lodge is open all year round, and whilst temperatures stay relatively cool throughout the year, they do have two seasons.

November to April are largely considered the summer months. Rainfall is more likely at this time of year, but this tends to result in crisp air and less foggy mornings, making it a great time of year for bird spotting.

May through to October are considered the winter months, where temperatures tend to stay at a steady 21 to 25 degrees Celsius, but when the sun falls, temperatures drop. Rain is much less likely at this time of year.
