Uniquely designed around the enigmatic shipwrecks that line Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, there’s nowhere on the continent quite like Shipwreck Lodge. In fact, there’s nowhere on the continent quite like the Skeleton Coast. It’s a raw, rugged and impossibly remote slice of African wilderness, where towering dunes and wind-swept plains roll as far as the eye can see, buffeted by the icy Atlantic seas.
But there’s much more to the area than simple isolation. Stay at Shipwreck Lodge and game drive amongst desert-dwelling elephant and track elusive desert lion; discover the enchanting desert flora (succulents and lichens); sit atop the dunes as the sun sinks below the horizon; spend the day beach-combing for whale bones and debris from centuries of shipwrecks, or marvel at the geologically-remarkable Clay Castles. Really, there’s nowhere like it on earth.
Day 2 to Day 3 - Mowe Bay
You have two full days to explore this remarkable area. Embark on drives within the northern Skeleton Coast National Park, Sundowner drives to the dunes fields, 4×4 excursions to the Clay Castles & the Hoanib River Delta and along the coast. Track desert adapted elephants along the Horausib river or visits to the Suiderkus and Karimona shipwrecks. (BLD)
Day 4 - End of you Shipwreck Coast Stay
Today you are transferred back to Mowe Bay, board your private charter flight to Windhoek International Airport. At Windhoek International Airport you are met by an Ultimate Safari representative who will assist you to check in on your departure flight. (B)
