Cape Cross Lodge
Literally meters from the fertile Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cross Lodge presents a unique and serene stop for travellers along this vast untamed, seldom explored wilderness on the Skeleton Coast. Situated alongside the biggest breeding Cape Fur Seal colony in the world, but well out of the "smell" zone, 60km north of Henties Bay and 120km north of Swakopmund. The curious mix of Cape Dutch and West Coast fishing village architecture with colossal windows happily embrace the natural light and affords endless contemplated vistas.
Around this tranquil oasis lodge lies infinite ocean and desert, littered with the eerie remains of man’s past endeavours. Nearby, rocky outcrops provide a perfect playground for a large seal colony. Activities obviously centre on the presence of the seals, and visitors can self-drive or even walk to the colony, ensuring they first visit the Ministry office to complete entry requirements.
The large patio, overlooking the beach and ocean, flows into the lower deck with its warm, welcoming reception area and intriguing curios shop housing an array of gifts. Leading from this charming space is the comforting cocktail bar and lounge, a quirky wine cellar and two cosy dining sectors. The private balconies glow with warmth wooden deckchairs and tables, affording unrestricted sea views and aura of complete respite.
Cape Cross Lodge at the Skeleton Coast offers 18 Sea View standard suites, and 2 Sea View semi-suites, classically appointed with attention to detail, yet animate with a rustic charm that is bewitching. Views through the large windows are breathtaking, no matter the time of day or night.
The en-suite bathrooms are a statement of elegant simplicity, while the private balconies glow with the warmth of wooden deckchairs and tables, affording unrestricted seaviews and an aura of complete respite.
Four of the bedrooms have been linked with a door to create a family suite when needed.
We also offer 6 rooms with wheelchair accessibility.
