We camped and their facilities were terrific. Big camp plot spaces with a running sink in each space. Braii stations. Showers and toilets were very nice and routinely cleaned. Free Wifi worked perfectly and their restaurant/bar/lounge had a really cozy feel that made you feel at home. We also ran out of gas but they sold us some and got... More

On our photographic journey through Namibia, we stayed one night at the Cape Cross Lodge. Our main objective was to photograph the seals of Cape Cross. The lodge was conveniently located and the seals were in close proximity. The lodge is an Eco-Lodge and is completely off the grid. The Owner "Nadine" was absolutely charming and very helpful. She made... More

It is easy to describe a visit to the Cape Cross Lodge near Namibia's Skeleton Coast but hard to convince someone they might like to go there themselves. Cape Cross is a couple of hours drive north of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund just south of Namibia's Skeleton Coast National Park. That area on the northern coast of Namibia is one... More

It was very cold and grey when we arrived and the rooms felt clean and well appointed but a bit sterile. The bathroom could do with some updating. The bar/restaurant area was welcoming and there was a big open fire, which was necessary to keep off the chill. The food was averagely good. Overall not a bad place to stay... More

I traveled to Cape Cross from Swakopmund. It was my first time staying at Cape Cross and I enjoyed my 2 night stay. Since I traveled on my birthday, I was surprised to a room decorated with balloons, chocolates and my favorite wine. A special dinner table was arranged on my second night. The service was outstanding, the staff and... More

We had a nice stay at Cape Cross and got to see the seals which had just given birth. We camped and enjoyed a well sheltered sleep. Also enjoyed their warm and cosy living room with a fire, a view of the sea, some great sea food and a nice bar. There was an optional breakfast (very big, good looking,... More

We spent one night at that hotel as a stop over on our way to Etosha Park and to observe the seal colony nearby. The hotel reminded me a lot of those in the Netherlands. It is located on the beach. The sea was very rough because of a storm that had struck the coast the day before. We had... More
