Plan your journey

Location

The hotel is within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and beachfront of Swakopmund. The city is full of German colonial architecture to discover and although small, there’s plenty to see and do from cultural explorations of the city to desert and sea based adventure beyond.

Rooms

Spread across four buildings are ten smart bedrooms, all individually decorated and furnished with a pleasant mixture of both modern and antique pieces. Black and white photos and artwork adorn the walls and the rooms have king or queen size beds with electric blankets, a separate seating area and flat-screen TV’s. The Queen Room is set in the attic with doors leading to a Juliet balcony. Couples will enjoy the Romeo and Juliet Room, which has a private balcony and views over Swakopmund. Families can opt for The Nest, a white picket fenced cottage with private gardens and a large lounge area

Communal Areas

The main area stays true to its colonial design with modern touches to brighten up the space. The formal lounge has rich red walls, dark wooden furniture and modern artwork lining the walls. There are stone floors throughout, coffee tables surrounded by sofas, a marble fireplace and the original staircase leading up to the bedrooms. The separate restaurant, Il Tulipano, is an inviting and bright space where all meals are enjoyed. The lodge also has its own flower-deck garden with a spacious lawn, a water feature and plenty of sofas and chairs on its raised patio.

Activities

Try one of the many adrenalin-fuelled activities on offer, including dune-boarding, sky-diving and quad-biking across the desert. Take a day trip to Sandwich Harbour, visit the seals and dolphins at Walvis Bay or glide over the landcape in a hot-air balloon. Guests can also take tours of the city and visit both the Swakopmund Museum and National Marine Aquarium.

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.
