Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

A lowly cross, planted by Portuguese explorer Diogo Cáo, stood on the ill-tempered Skeleton Coast for 400 years before succumbing to the patience of nature. Now a replica stands in its place. This one is protected by a small hotel that would have had many a stranded sailor whooping for joy.

Cape Cross Lodge is beyond the whiff of the world's largest colony of breeding seals and the only sign of civilisation for many miles in every direction. The Namib Desert stretches vast and fearsome into the east and the bounteous Atlantic Ocean stretches vast and chilly to the west. The Skeleton Coast stretches for hundreds of deserted miles north and south.

The lodge has 20 large, comfortable and elegant rooms with en suite bathrooms and balconies that gaze upon the endless ocean view. Colours are demure and hazy, like the ever-present mists created by the clash between cool sea breeze and baking desert air.

The living area has patios, sun decks, a lounge and cocktail bar, a wine cellar and two cosy dining areas.
