Pelican Point Lodge is situated on a unique stretch of land, the remote peninsula of Pelican Point at Walvis Bay, a committed venue to creating memories for all our guests that will last a lifetime.
With the untouched beaches of the Atlantic Ocean on the one side and the Lagoon of Walvis Bay on the other, our aim is to provide you with an unique experience that demands nothing much of you, but to arrive, relax, reflect and unwind in one of the most enchanting and unique settings in our beautiful country.
From your own private deck, expect to enjoy the antics of hundreds of seals surfing the ocean waves, or just their basking in the sun, spot the dolphin’s, whales and mola-mola, hearing the distinctive call of the jackal roaming close by the lodge, observing their playful nature. Witness spectacular flocks of damara-terns, cormorants and flamingo’s flying or feeding in the more tranquil waters of the lagoon. Follow fishing vessels, and catamaran`s, to and from the Walvis Bay harbor presenting perfect photo opportunities on both misty and sunny days.
For closer encounters, a relaxing stroll to the point of the Peninsula will present you with perfect photographic opportunities of intriguing small desert dweller. A favorite is a walk to the old rusted Jetty, about 800 meters from the Lodge, with a book, camera, picnic basket, interacting and observing the playful seals and birdlife from close. On a clear sunny day the dunes of the Namib Desert, will give you a perfect backdrop creating memories of this unique place.
Accommodation is offered in the renovated old Harbor Control building, at the foot of the Lighthouse, known as Pelican Point Lodge and offers our guests a choice of 10 luxury suites.
Our guests that prefer to dine in private in their suite, deck or want something special is always welcome to talk to us to make it a memorable dining experience. All our suites are spacious, decorated in a warm contemporary style and designed to make use of the beautiful views even whilst showering.
The following facilities and amenities you will find in the rooms:

* dune trips,
* educational quadbiking,
* dune boarding,

Booking the outsourced activities however mean, that you will be away from the Lodge for half a day or some tours the entire day.
Due to the wind usually picking up as from midday all outsourced activities are only conducted in the mornings.
Regardless of how many nights you stay, appart from the inhouse activities and the kayaking with the Seals, I would suggest at this stage not to pre-book too many excursions. If you feel like doing more excursions, then rather book these directly from the Lodge.
