Certificate of Excellence
The lodge is a perfect rest spot for those travelling the Skeleton Coast or Damaraland region. Day visitors are most welcome as well as overnight guests. The in-house museum accommodates past relics of early settlers at Cape Cross and visitors can explore the history entwined within the lodge surroundings.
