Shipwreck Lodge offers one of the only chances to stay on the rugged Skeleton Coastline in chalets designed to mimic the shipwrecks that characterise this coastline.
With each eco-friendly chalet offering panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, spacious en-suite rooms, cosy fireplaces, and private decks, Shipwreck Lodge sets the stage for an unforgettable family holiday.
The main lodge holds a cosy lounge for toasty evenings by the fire as well as an outdoor deck from which you can watch the sun set over the harsh Atlantic.
But it’s not just about the accommodation. Shipwreck Lodge offers an array of activities that cater to all ages. Families can embark on guided 4×4 excursions to explore the desolate, haunting beauty of the Skeleton Coast, discover shipwrecks, and observe the diverse desert-adapted wildlife, including the local inhabitant Danny the elephant, desert lions, brown hyenas and jackals.
Thrill-seekers can take to sand boards on the dunes or whizz around on a quad biking excursion nearby. And the captivating Clay Castles, a natural rock formation in the nearby Hoarusib River are definitely worth a visit.
Whether you’re unwinding by the cosy fireplace or marvelling at the star-studded desert skies, Shipwreck Lodge promises a luxury safari experience for families that is truly one-of-a-kind.
