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.

Shipwreck Lodge is the only lodge situated inside the Skeleton Coast Central Concession an area of 146,600 hectares. Inside the Skeleton Coast National Park, between the Hoarusib and Hoanib Rivers, 10 eco-friendly cabins are found scattered amongst the sand dunes as if shipwrecked. With next to nothing close by, it's desolate, remote and the epitome of solitude, yet with all the comforts of a luxury lodge that would gladly have you "stranded" a little longer.

Built with a nautical feel with modern minimal elegance. Wooden finishes, neutral in congruence with the surrounding desert landscapes and distant Atlantic. Understated yet indulgent. Cosy and all conducive to an atmosphere of utmost relaxation and comfort, whether in your cabin or lounging in the main area, you'll feel right at home.

Perched on the sand dunes, don't expect to get far without getting sand in your shoes. Better yet, go barefoot and experience the sand between your toes, in touch with nature and all that surrounds you. Simply sit and enjoy the endless views. Be on the lookout for the desert adapted animals that inhabit the area and on a clear night enjoy the million starred sky. Just another reminder that there's little else around you but the untouched beauty of the Namibian coast.


Fully inclusive in 8 twin/ double cabins and 2 family cabins; en suite with shower; writing desk; bedside lamps on solar power; safe; indoor wood burning stove; private deck with endless views; coffee and tea facilities with hot water flasks; restaurant; bar; lounge; WiFi at main area and airstrip transfers.


Half day Möwe Bay excursion; Half day 4x4 Hoarusib River drive to the Clay Castles; beach lunches; sundowner drives to the roaring dunes; sand boarding and quad biking.

All activities are flexible and can be adjusted accordingly.

Make sure you spend some time relaxing, which won't be hard and enjoy a lie in in the mornings when the cool coastal mist still lingers in the dunes. A change of pace from the rest of your itinerary. There's no better place to be.
