"Perched at the edge of Pelican Point, this lodge is quirky in design and boasts breathtaking panoramic vistas over the Atlantic Ocean. It is a perfect fit for adventurers who want to discover the unpredictability of this volatile coastline. It's worth noting that the lodge is highly exposed to the elements but excellent for marine life, with a Cape fur seal colony nearby."


Although it has lost some of its navigational significance due to modern position systems, the tower is still in working order. It is used by local seafarers and will remain a landmark of Walvis Bay for the foreseeable future. Pelican Point Lodge boasts a very remote location – but this is not for everyone. The property is very exposed to the elements and the area is known for strong winds and heavy fog – additionally, the industrial backdrop can be off-putting. We recommend the lodge to those seeking to get away from the crowds of Swakopmund to explore the dramatic coastline and its marine wildlife!


Pelican Point Lodge is located on a sandbar on a remote peninsular at Walvis Bay.


The social epicenter of the lodge is the dining room and the lounge area with the huge deck. The deck boasts incredible views out over the Atlantic Ocean and the desert dunes. Having been renovated from the old harbor control building, the lodge has plenty of quirks that add to its character!

The nine suites are similarly quirky. The most impressive of these is the Captain’s Cove, which offers 360° panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, whilst the Lighthouse Suite offers guests the unique opportunity to stay in a lighthouse! Each room, individually decorated, has a private deck for guests to enjoy watching the antics of the marine life.

**For families with children under the age of 6 years, we always request a ground floor room or a room without a balcony for safety reasons. If you stay here with us, please ensure this is what you are given. **


  • Activities at Pelican Point are mainly focused on exploring the coastal landscape and the marine wildlife on foot.
  • Self-guided walks are the order of the day and the lodge happily provides simple picnics for guests. This means you can take time to let the charm of this special place sink in, without feeling the pressure of needing to return to the lodge for lunch!
  • Other activities such as kayaking with seals and quad biking through the dunes are available, but these must be arranged prior to arrival and will be subject to an additional cost.
