Luxury Lodge Accommodation - Cape Cross Lodge - Namibia

Literally metres from the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cross Lodge presents a unique and serene stop for travellers along this vast untamed and seldom explored wilderness on the Skeleton Coast. The Lodge is situated 60km north of Henties Bay and 120km north of Swakopmund. The curious mix of Cape Dutch and West Coast fishing village architecture, nestles colossal windows which embrace the natural light and reveal endless vistas.


The Lodge offers eighteen sea view standard suites and two sea view semi-suites. No matter the time of day or night, the large sea-facing windows frame breathtaking panoramas that can be enjoyed from every room. All bathrooms are en-suite and while the first floor balconies offer a private space for one to enjoy the scenery, the ground floor balconies also provide direct access to the beach. Four of the bedrooms have been linked with a door to create a family suite when needed. We also offer six rooms with wheelchair accessibility.

Camping Sites:

Each of the twenty one campsites is equipped with its own light, with switch and a double 220v plug and own trip switch. A wash basin with cold running water and a work surface serve as an alfresco kitchen. Each site has its own braai area. There is a central ablution facility with showers, hot and cold running water, flush sanitation, hand basins and mirrors. Other facilities for campers include an entertainment room with full DSTV bouquet and a pool table.
