San Bushmen named this stretch of coastline 'The Land God Made in Anger' and it's possibly the last place you'd expect to find a luxury lodge in Namibia. Bleached whale bones and decaying hulls of doomed ships line the Skeleton Coast, a richly deserved moniker. Look carefully though and you'll find that this vast wilderness is, in fact, full of life. The sea is rich with marine creatures which feed off the nutrients in the Atlantic currents and the eerily beautiful sea fogs provide moisture for the sustenance of plants and insects, often just below the sand's surface. And inland, there are desert-adapted elephants and lion, as well as the occasional kudu, some of which occasionally find their way to the beaches creating absurd 'am-I-seeing-things' moments.
Shipwreck Lodge comprises ten uniquely designed huts set high on the dunes overlooking the Skeleton Coast. Each is constructed from wood with walls and windows skewed at angles to resemble the grounded wrecks. They are delightfully hygge, with wood burning stoves, faux-fur throws and velvet daybeds. Two of the rooms are designed for families and all rooms can be made as triples upon request. Dining is in a central lounge and restaurant which has a wraparound deck from which the views can be enjoyed.
