Pelican Point Lodge Walvis Bay
Pelican Point Lodge is situated on the remote peninsula of Pelican Point at Walvis Bay. This is an isolated piece of land, wild and exposed to the elements, but in a rich area for marine life and very close to a Cape fur seal colony. Occassionally a large ship or a fishing boat passes by the lodge on its way to the harbour of Walvis Bay.
The location of Pelican Point Lodge is defined by a lighthouse that can be seen from far away, leeding the way not only to the ships but also to travellers seeking direction to the lodge. The former control building was turned into a lodge and offers accommodation in nine rooms with balcony or deck. All rooms are spacious, decorated in a warm contemporary style and designed to make use of the beautiful views of the ocean. There are six luxury rooms, two suites and at the top of the control tower resides the Captain`s Cove Suite (penthouse), offering complete privacy and 360° views.
The lodges offers a lounge and a restaurant with a large deck where breakfasts or dinners can be served if the weather permits. Hundreds of cape seals can be seen from here, and with some luck even dolphins and whales.
Pelican Point Lodge is situated on the remote peninsula of Pelican Point at Walvis Bay. Pelican Point is a flat peninsular of sand which stretches into the Atlantic Ocean and protects the port of Walvis Bay.
The road to the lodge is challenging and a 4 x 4 vehicle is needed as parts of the road can become deep sand.
Explore the pristine stretch of sand of the Peninsula. The lodge can arrange a breakfast pack, picnic lunch or sundowner for a walk to the Peninsula Point or old Jetty. Observe the flamingos, pelicans, and get close to a seal colony. You may even encounter one or two jackals whose call can be heard at night while they wander around the lodge.
A full range of activities can be arranged at extra cost. For example kayaking close to a seal colony, boat trips (dolphin cruises), fishing, sand boarding or 4 x 4 trips down to Sandwich Harbour.
Good to know
The coast is usually cooler than the rest of Namibia and a blanket of fog often covers the ocean, so best to bring some warm clothes.
