Location

Swapping nightlife for wildlife, Cape Cross lodge comes as welcome respite from Namibian tourism darling, Swakopmund. 120km north of the regional capital, the untouched Skeleton Coast is the isolated haven for a large colony of fur seals. Only a short drive or walk away from the lodge, the seals are one of the area’s biggest attractions. Whether exploring shipwrecks or poring over watercolours painted by local Namibian artists, there’s a wealth of activities for you to enjoy a truly memorable experience.

Accommodation

Based on a quintessential Namibian west-coast fishing village and Cape Dutch architecture, the suites are at once contemporary and comfortable. Each room comes with large, sea-facing windows that open onto private decking. First floor rooms offer balconies while those on the ground floor provide direct access to the beach. A real dilemma. With only eighteen standard suites and two larger semi-suites, the lodge is able to effortlessly maintain its intimate atmosphere. Additionally, four of the bedrooms can be linked to accommodate families.

Dining

In true frontier fashion, meals are served around an open flame fire in winter and, in summer, guests can enjoy al fresco dining and a cool sea breeze on the veranda overlooking the beach. The menu’s centrepiece is undoubtedly the wide selection of local seafood though the Namibian game and meats are not to be missed. Refreshing salads and desserts round off a collection that will see everybody well-catered for. You can even pre-arrange dinner on the beach. Day visitors and guests alike are also particularly fond of the freshly baked cakes and coffee served in the afternoon.

Facilities

With an open fire burning in the lounge and the Namibian winter surprisingly cold, you could be forgiven for wanting to just enjoy what the cocktail bar has to offer. However, with the lodge built practically on the beach, the real facilities lie in its surrounding area. Aside from the beach and the seals, the lodge offers tours to the nearby petrified lagoon, volcanic crater and the oldest desert in the world – the Namib Desert.
