Situated metres from the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cross Lodge sits alongside the biggest breeding Cape Fur Seal colony in the world, but well out of the "smell" zone, 60km north of Henties Bay and 120km north of Swakopmund.
The lodge offers 18 Sea View standard suites, and 2 Sea View semi-suites, tastefully appointed with a rustic charm. Views through the large windows are breathtaking, no matter the time of day or night. The en suite bathrooms are simple but elegant, and the private balconies have wooden deckchairs and tables, offering unrestricted sea views.
Four of the bedrooms have been linked with a door to create a family suite when required.
The lodge is surrounded by ocean and desert, littered with the eerie remains of man's past endeavours. Nearby, rocky outcrops provide a perfect playground for a large seal colony. Activities obviously centre on the presence of the seals, and visitors can self-drive or even walk to the colony, ensuring they first visit the Ministry office to complete entry requirements. The Cape Cross eco daytrip offers exclusive sightseeing of this mountainous area of Namibia. The trip caters for those with a particular interest in photography, geology, history, geography, desert fauna and the curious desert succulent flora.
