What to Expect - About Us | Shipwreck Lodge

What to Expect

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 Möwe Bay. The shipwreck-shaped chalets are nestled between the dunes with a view of the Atlantic Ocean where the cold Benguela current provides guests with a refreshing breeze.

Our exclusive clients can look forward to appreciating the harshness of the desert and the beauty of these solitary landscapes filled with geological history. Learn about the fauna and flora adapted to survive in these harsh conditions – all from the comfort of the restaurant deck. There are 8 twin/double chalets and 2 family chalets.

Internet/Wi-Fi is available in the reception area. Please note that due to our remote location connectivity cannot be guaranteed.


Due to the Benguela Current and the Atlantic Ocean, the Skeleton Coast is known to offer misty and foggy weather pattern.  With the mist and the fog setting the mood for the skeleton coast, it also means that some activities are weather depended
Sundowner drives, beach lunches, excursion to Möwe Bay and the Seal Colony, excursion of the Hoarusib River, guided beach walks, quad biking and sandboarding

Our Restaurant

The lounge, restaurant and dining area are the heart of the lodge. It is a cosy and welcoming environment that also offers an opportunity to interact with our staff who keep the ship sailing.  Enjoy morning coffee or an evening sundowner on the outdoor deck, or retreat to the inside and marvel at the starkly beautiful landscape.
