Pelican Point Lodge
Swakopmund

Located on the very edge of an untouched peninsula near Walvis Bay, overlooking the scenic Atlantic Ocean, Pelican Point Lodge is a unique hotel in a beautifully remote setting.

Wake up to the sound of the waves and panoramic beach views, before sliding open the doors to your own private deck to observe the hundreds of seals playing along the shore with a fresh cup of coffee: heaven for wildlife and beach lovers.

This exclusive lodge is home to just 10 luxury suites within a renovated Harbour Control building at the foot of a historic lighthouse. All of these come complete with comfortable furniture, en suites and seating areas – not forgetting eco fireplaces, which are ideal for the colder months. Our favourite suite has to be the Captain’s Cove Suite, found at the top of the building, for it offers 360 degree views over the sweeping landscape outside and guarantees beautiful sunrise and sunset views.

We recommend embracing this lodge’s spectacular location by taking a relaxing stroll along the beach and the old jetty and spotting seals, cormorants, flocks of terns and flying flamingos along your way. The tranquil lagoon also makes for the perfect spot to sit and read your favourite book, or snap away on your camera, as the wild animals go about their daily life around you.

Guided walks or drives to nearby sites like the surfing hotspot Skeleton Bay and the renowned Ramsar site are provided here; as are kayaking excursions where you will join the neighbourhood’s seals in the water. Further afield in Walvis Bay, you can take part in an array of morning activities - from dolphin cruises and 4×4 dune trips to educational desert tours and scenic flights - meaning there is something for everyone here.

As the atmospheric mist rolls in over the ocean at the end of the day, venture into the cosy lodge to enjoy delicious South African cuisine and sophisticated wines in the lodge’s elegant dining room. Or if you prefer more privacy, why not enjoy dining on your suite’s deck in the fresh air?

A stay at Pelican Point Lodge can slot nicely into a tour in Namibia, as its location offers a welcome stop off when travelling between the central regions of the country to Sossusvlei.

Client Testimonials

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
