Shipwreck Lodge
Skeleton Coast

The Shipwreck Lodge, located on the famous Skeleton Coast, is a showstopper with its exciting design and dramatic coastal location. Positioned amongst the sand dunes of the Skeleton Coast, the lodge sits proudly, yet isolated, within a vast private concession made up of wind-sculpted beaches and sandy moonscapes. 

The 12 shipwreck-themed and wooden suites are well spaced and have cleverly designed floor-to-ceiling windows which face outwards over the Atlantic Ocean and the hauntingly beautiful beaches. The suites are simply yet stylishly furnished in keeping with their surrounds. The shipwreck theme continues with the main areas which are a masterpiece of design with light woods, huge windows and endless decking.    

Activities at the lodge include sundowner drives over the dunes, full-day trips to track the elusive desert elephant in the Hoarusib River Valley and trips to the Hoanib River where the extraordinary desert-adapted giraffes can be found.

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
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
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
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
