#1 of 5 Specialty lodging in Skeleton Coast National Park
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. The Atlantic ocean hugs a vast expanse of beach where one can stroll while taking in the breathless vistas.

My husband and I were gifted a 3night stay at Cape Cross Lodge for Christmas, we stayed in the middle of December. We absolutely loved it. Nadine and her team ensured that we had the best time, a day of fishing followed by fresh fish for dinner, which was just heaven. We would highly recommend a 3 night stay for anyone!! Thank you Nadine and co for a relaxing, blissful and stunning time.

We had our wedding there this past weekend & were absolutely BLOWN AWAY. Rooms were fantastic, with an amazing seaview,and fully equipped with everything you need & the campsites were just as great with their bathrooms very spacious and neat as well. Our arrangements and correspondation with the lodge before & during the wedding was very professional and super easy. Nothing was ever too much trouble or not possible for them. They went out of their way to meet all our needs at a very reasonable price! They accomodated my dad who is in a wheelchair and he was able to move everywhere with no trouble at all, this we are SO GRATEFUL FOR! The staff helped us with the setup of everything beforehand and compliments to the chef on the MOST DELICIOUS FOOD! All our guests were extremely happy and one of the highlights of the venue was the fact that everything, rooms, restaurant, bar & campsite are within 1 minute walk from each other. This was the most beautiful day of my life & we would recommend the lodge to absolutely everyone, to have your wedding, birthday party or just to escape reality! The Cape Cross seal reserve is close by & fishing or long walks by the beach is great for spending time alone or with loved ones. Thanks to Life & his amazing team for providing excellent service and creating the day of our dreams! Absolutely in love with Cape Cross Lodge!

We didn’t stay here, we passed by as we were too early to enter into the seal reserve, we had a walk around the cape cross lodge as well we visited the small museum in the lodge, interesting place. Located 60km North of Henties Bay, in the middle of the skeleton coast.

Could not eat half of it. What I did eat was tough and gristle. I mentioned it to the waiter and the only thing he did was to say he was sorry, and that other customers had the same experience. Will not recommend this restaurant. Management was informed but had no response
