Shipwreck Lodge

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

Inspired by the weather-beaten shipwrecks of the desolate Skeleton Coast, this unforgettable lodge offers unique access to one of the most remote corners of Namibia.

Set on a private concession in the Skeleton Coast National Park, just 10 en-suite cabins – including two family suites – host a handful of guests on unforgettable journeys in this unique landscape.

Days are filled with 4×4 adventures through the dune fields and to lonely shipwrecks, while game drives in the Park reveal desert-adapted wildlife and remarkable river deltas.

Come sunset, bundle up by the fireplace and enjoy hearty Namibian cuisine in the central lodge and dining area.

Surrounding area

The Skeleton Coast National Park runs for approximately 500-kilometres, from the Uqab River to the border with Angola on the Kunene River. Shipwreck Lodge sits alone on a concession amid this vast coastal desert.

The landscape is harsh, the weather unrelenting and the isolation absolute. And that’s precisely what makes this unique destination so worth a visit. This is unfiltered, uncrowded Namibia at its finest.
