Cape Cross Lodge

Discover Cape Cross Lodge

Cape Cross Lodge is situated metres from the Atlantic Ocean on Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, very close to the Cape Cross Seal Reserve. Its architecture is a mix of Cape Dutch and West Coast Fishing Village.

There are 18 sea view standard suites and 2 sea view semi-suites. First floor balconies allow you to enjoy the spectacular scenery and the ground-floor balconies have direct access to the beach. The restaurant serves fresh seafood, game meat and traditional fare either indoors or Alfresco dining on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The lodge also features a fascinating on-site museum and art gallery. Excursions from the lodge include the seal colony, the Petrified Lagoon, the Messum Volcanic Crater as well as shipwreck and desert tours.
