The Stiltz hero
Discover The Stiltz

The Stilz, in Swakopmund, offers bungalows built on wood stilts at the mouth of the Swakop River. It overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, the Namib sand dunes, and the bird-rich lagoon at the river mouth. You will feel remote but are within walking distance to the shops, restaurants, and amenities of Swakopmund.

Its quirky design makes the property utterly unique. The bungalows and villas are linked together and to the main areas by wooden walkways. Delicious breakfasts are served overlooking the spectacular views. Activities nearby include quad biking, sky diving, dune surfing, boat trips and desert tours.
