Located in the famous Skeleton Coast concession between the Hoarusib and Hoanib rivers in the Skeleton Coast National Park, Shipwreck Lodge is only 45 km from Mowe Bay. There is absolutely nowhere in the world quite like Shipwreck Lodge. Staying here will make you appreciate the harshness of the desert and the beauty of these solitary landscapes filled with geological history.
Created by an ambitious local architect, the Lodge comprises ten individual eco-cabins, all expertly and sustainably constructed to resemble the thousands of shipwrecks that have lined the beach over time. The solar-powered cabins were specifically designed to be refuges that make guests feel at peace amongst the overwhelming desert landscape, yet with huge windows that frame it all like a living piece of art. Wraparound decks allows you to absorb the magnificent views in all their jaw-dropping glory in every direction. All of the cabins are ensuite, and feature a warming woodburning stove – essential on chilly evenings. Relax inside with a steaming mug of coffee, as you look out to sea and plan the day ahead.
