Pelican Point Lodge, Walvis Bay


This unique lodge is situated on the remote peninsula of Pelican Point near Walvis Bay with the untouched beaches of the Atlantic Ocean on the one side and Walvis Bay Lagoon on the other.

Pelican Point has housed a beacon to safely guide ships into the Walvis Bay harbour since 1915. The lodge itself is situated in the renovated harbour control building adjacent to the ‘new’ lighthouse which was built in 1932. It is possible to visit Pelican Point on a boat trip from Walvis Bay but wildlife lovers will want to stay here for the full nature and wilderness experience.

Guests at Pelican Point Lodge are free to explore the peninsula at their leisure and the lodge staff will happily arrange a picnic hamper for breakfast, lunch or some sundowner drinks for those wanting to spend some additional time in the great outdoors. From your own private deck, you can expect to enjoy the antics of hundreds of seals surfing the ocean waves, spot dolphins, whales and Mola mola and hear the distinctive call of the jackal roaming close by the lodge. Witness spectacular flocks of Damara terns, cormorants, pelicans and flamingos feeding in the more tranquil waters of the lagoon. Activities include kayaking with the seals and dolphin cruises.

There are a total of nine suites. The Captain’s Cove Suite is located in the penthouse and enjoys 360 degree views. The room décor has been designed to take advantage of the views and light this unique environment has to offer. All the suites have a seating area, deck area (complete with blankets for chilly evenings) and a fireplace and the Captain’s Cove Suite also includes a bath.  You can choose to dine in private in your suite or in the restaurant, with the meal being served either in the dining room or on the deck, depending on the weather. A complimentary drink and snack station is available 24 hours a day.
