Each of the 10 rooms have been constructed to resemble the shipwrecks that line the beach. There are eight twin or double rooms, and two family tents, all en-suite and solar-powered. A wood burning stove will keep the room warm in the chilly evenings and mornings.
In the centre of camp, you’ll find an equally as innovatively-designed lounge and restaurant with a wide, wraparound deck and uninterrupted views across the sand, all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.
The first part of the Skeleton Coast from Swakopmund to the north is open to the public. The Skeleton Coast National Park itself, a 16'845 km² large nature reserve, was founded in 1973 and was recently linked to the Namib-Naukluft Park via the Dorob National Park.
The southern entrance to the park is located after mile 108 near the Ugab river mouth. A permit is needed to enter the park. Most visitors leave the park via the Springbokwater gate on their way to Damaraland.
Self-Drivers need to park the vehicle at Moewe Bay and will be transferred to the lodge at around 3pm. It is around 8 hours drive from Swakopmund, and 3 hours from Damaraland Camp.
Travellers should not be deterred by such conditions but embrace one of the last true wilderness areas in Namibia. However be aware that there can be thick fog in the colder months from June to September. From October to March the weather conditions improve as the hot sun chases away the fog in the course of the day.
