The Stiltz is an eclectic and tranquil lodge with breathtaking views of the ocean and sand dunes. Although holding a remote atmosphere, a stay in this unique raised property means a short walk into the charming town of Swakopmund with its many restaurants and activities.


Plan your journey

Location

The lodge overlooks the Swakop River and is located right on the edge of Swakopmund with views of both the Atlantic Ocean and Namib Desert sand dunes. It’s just a short walk to the town centre and the sea, and the lodge itself is raised above the swampy marsh, which acts as a breeding ground for many bird species.

Rooms

Sitting tall on stilts above the riverbed are nine wooden chalets and two villas. Interiors are bright and colourful with boldly coloured curtains, cushions and bedspreads complementing the wooden walls and unique furnishings. There’s an honesty bar and wi-fi provided in each room and some of the suites boast sea-view balconies. Beds have heated blankets for winter nights and en-suites offer large showers and bathtubs.

Communal Areas

The main area is linked to the bedrooms by wooden walkways and offers a similar colourful interior. Guests can enjoy the surrounding scenery over food in the breakfast room or lounge on comfortable sofas made of blue-gum wood found in the Swakop River. A large window provides panoramic views of both the sea and desert.

Activities

Take scenic drives along Namibia’s stunning coastline or visit the granite peaks and hidden Bushmen artwork of the Namib Desert. Discover a variety of small desert-adapted animals on a Little Five Tour and take a look at the indigenous Welwitschia Mirablis plants, the deserts oldest living specimens. The Swakopmund Museum is also worth a visit and guests can take guided city tours among the colonial-era buildings. For the adventurous, skydiving, paragliding, dune-boarding and kite-surfing are all available.

WET SEASON

This is the peak of the wet season, yet days with rainfall are still very rare indeed.

Great birding with migratory species present.

Less foggy conditions.

Temperatures are pleasant, averaging 25°C/77°F midday, but can occasionally rise well above this. Night time lows average a comfortable 17°C/63°F.

Swakopmound and Walvis Bay have a desert climate, with just the very occasional rain shower during the Namibian wet season, which runs from October through to April. The rest of the year rainfall is very unlikely. It’s location between the cold Atlantic Ocean and the hot interior does however give rise to some very foggy conditions, especially through the winter/ dry season months. This is a part of Namibia which is great all year round, though we personally prefer the summer months for the warmer and less foggy conditions.
