Wake up to the sight of endless sand dunes surrounding you. Then slowly realize the wooden structures next to you are actual shipwrecks. Notice the signs indicating that you are in a place called Skeleton Coast National Park. Burning sun, sand dunes, shipwrecks, and skeletons? Surely this must be a nightmare. Until you realize you are in one of the most amazing places in Namibia. It's a top-notch lodge that built luxury suites out of wood to resemble shipwrecks and to blend in the environment. This remote wilderness of Namibia’s northwestern coast is full of shipwrecks and whale skeletons on an extensive land area of 146,600 hectares.
The lodge is nestled between the spectacular dunes and the Atlantic Ocean shore. There are ten shipwreck-shaped cabins to choose from. Eight twin and double, and two family eco-friendly suites that are running on solar power. They are equipped with a wood-burning stove and plushy blankets for the chilly desert nights. The cabins have wooden decks where you can admire the harsh beauty of the Namibian desert.
