Pelican Point Lodge
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?
