Pelican Point Lodge

Discover Pelican Point Lodge

Pelican Point Lodge holds a truly remote and spectacular location, built on a sandbank bordered one side by a lagoon and the other by the Atlantic Ocean. On a remote peninsula stretching into the ocean, Pelican Point is approximately half an hour's 4x4 drive from the harbour town of Walvis Bay. Pelican Point used to house a beacon to guide ships into Walvis Bay harbour. Pelican Point Lodge is now situated in the renovated harbour control building next to the lighthouse. Its unique position affords its guests panoramic views of the sea. From the private decks, guests can witness hundreds of seals surfing the waves or basking in the sun or spot dolphins and whales as well as flocks of Damara-terns, cormorants and flamingos flying or feeding in the more tranquil waters of the lagoon. The busy waters make for interesting viewing of human activity as well in the form of fishing vessels, passenger ships, oil-rigs and catamarans.

Pelican Point Lodge offers 10 luxury suites all of which make use of the beautiful views even whilst showering. They also include iPhone charger and clock, dressing table, lounge area, deck area, fireplace, queen size bed, 2 showers and 2 basins. The lodge's communal area has a dining and lounge are where its guests can further admire the fine views. Heading outside there is an outside deck area looking out of the bay and the Namib Desert dunes, the perfect place to watch the sun setting or enjoy a hearty breakfast. The lodge is half board so will also provide guests with a 3-course meal for dinner served in either the dining room or the main deck (depending on the weather). Lunch can be ordered on request.

Pelican Point guests are free to explore the peninsula at their leisure and the lodge staff will happily arrange a picnic hamper or some sundowner drinks for those wanting to spend some additional time in the great outdoors.
