What to Expect

Embark on an extraordinary expedition through a captivating corner of the world, where the remnants of bygone eras adorn the shores. Located just 45 kilometres from the quaint settlement of Möwe Bay, this seemingly short distance belies the time it takes to traverse the rugged landscape and witness the must-see sights along the way.

At Shipwreck Lodge, prepare yourself for unforgettable sights and thrilling experiences that will leave a lasting impression. This journey promises to be an unparalleled encounter with the past and the remarkable wildlife that inhabits this extraordinary place.


The ever-changing weather conditions, characterised by occasional strong winds and dense fog caused by the cold Atlantic Ocean, may limit the availability of certain activities. Nevertheless, we strive to accommodate our guests' preferences to the best of our abilities while prioritising their safety.

Witness the remnants of the abandoned Westies diamond mine, explore the haunting shipwrecks, and marvel at the natural wonders of the Flamingo Pools and the bustling seal colonies. Journey into the Hoarusib River, and be amazed at the mesmerising geological wonders of the Clay Castles. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of wildlife that flourishes in the surrounding area, their fascinating behaviours and gain insight into their ways of life. The plant life in the area is abundant, and their survival in this ecosystem with minimal water a true feat.

Experience the thrill of sandboarding on the timeless dunes of the world's oldest desert or join an exhilarating quad bike tour. Indulge in beach lunches, where the refreshing Atlantic breeze caresses your skin and the rhythmic waves serenade your senses.

No matter your choice of excursion, your guides will enthral you with their knowledge on the area, the history, the wild- and plant life that surrounds the lodge.
