Best Safari Lodges and hotels in Africa

Namibia lodges range from authentic and rustic desert lodges, to more of a barefoot luxury experience. In Namibia, you don’t find the world’s most lavish lodges but ones which are luxuriously in fitting with their surroundings. However, there are plenty of options which offer chic and tasteful luxury for you to return to after a day of exploration. Comparatively to the rest of safari Africa, the “fly in” lodges are not too expensive either; though they are very remote, and as such, the flights can add up to mean you need quite deep pockets to explore a few regions in one trip.

Shipwreck Lodge Namibia: The best authentic desert lodge in Namibia


Shipwreck Lodge is the best example of those who want to experience Namibia in all its glory, don’t want to do this in halves, and don’t want added luxuries which may take away from this experience. The aptly named Shipwreck Lodge is designed to replicate a historical shipwreck you can find on the coast of this eerie land. The rooms are relatively small but offer a real experience in themselves. You can imagine what it might have been like to be held captive by this harsh and unforgiving land as so many have been in the past… Though you are in perfect comfort whilst doing so!

This lodge is utterly unique and to stay here will cost you around $1,000 per person per night. There are cheaper options out there though, so if you want a place to base yourself which isn’t quite so costly, then let us know. However the flights make up much of many people’s budget, so really, to do Namibia well you have to have quite a big budget.

The best desert-chic lodge in Namibia


At the top end of Namibia’s lodges is undoubtedly Hoanib Skeleton Coast from Wilderness Safaris which is the ultimate desert chic getaway. Aside from its location in the heart of a beautiful scenic backdrop in an area which is peppered with a fantastic array of desert adapted species, Hoanib is fabulous inside as well as out. You are welcomed by a sleek design, warming fires and elegant, spacious rooms. We absolutely love it. You can stay here for around $1,500 per person per night… This is the very top end of Namibia accommodation, and when you compare it to the rest of safari Africa, this is not a huge amount for the experience you get.
