Set on Namibia’s vast and untamed Skelton Coast, Cape Cross Lodge is equal parts Cape Dutch architecture and Namibian west-coast fishing village.
Accommodation at the lodge consist of twenty luxury en-suite rooms. There are eighteen sea-view standard suites with double beds and an en suite bathroom with a shower. The two sea-view semi-suites are more spacious and include an en suite bathroom with a shower and bath as well as a sitting area with comfy armchairs and a coffee table. All the rooms include a private patio or balcony with wooden deck chairs for relaxing and taking in the breathtaking views of the wide blue Atlantic Ocean.
Where the Namib Desert intersects with the Namibia’s Atlantic shoreline, it is called the Skeleton Coast. It is in this unique region that Cape Cross Lodge is situated. The lodge is about one hour north of Swakopmund and just 2.5 miles from the Cape Cross Seal Reserve. Cape Cross Lodge is an ideal destination for travelers who want to explore Namibia’s Skeleton Coast and Damaraland regions. The coast of Namibia is barren, windswept, and yet starkly beautiful. The cold Benguela current runs along the coast making the seas surprisingly rich. As the chilled sea air encounters the warm desert air, it creates a dense fog that provides water to the area’s specially-adapted animals and plants.
