  • Comfort Level: Comfortable

overview

Situated near the end of a long peninsula stretching into the Atlantic Ocean that protects the Namibian port of Walvis (Whale) Bay, the stunningly remote Pelican Point Lodge offers luxurious accommodation amid gorgeous scenery and intriguing marine life.

The 4-storey lodge, complete with a lighthouse, is an idyllic base from which to experience this dynamic desert country’s under-rated coastal areas where kayaking with Cape fur seals, dolphin cruises and whale watching can all be part of your day’s line-up. Bird watching here is excellent too with impressive flocks of damara terns, cormorants, flamingos and pelicans all to be spotted from the outside lounging areas of the lodge.

From your sea-facing suite’s private deck observe the antics of seals surfing the waves or enjoying a lazy bask in the afternoon sun. From the big, blue skies above, birds scan the tranquil lagoon waters for their lunch while behind the breakers the fishing vessels and passenger ships that dot the horizon present photo-perfect opportunities misty and sunny days. Also keep your eyes peeled for the enormous mola-mola fish that weigh up to a ton and, while tucked up in bed at night, listen for the distinct call of lone jackal making his nocturnal rounds...

Traveller Reviews

  • The Pelican Point turned was very nice. The rooms and common areas were pretty and the views were lovely.

    David Sims, May 2015
  • Many thanks for all your advice, it was really perfect. You took a lot of time to explain to me and give me advise so the less I can do is to give you our feedback on the trip, on all accommodations even if it has not been booked by you. Our trip was perfect. We had a good time over there and we enjoyed each day. Our favourite accommodation will be Pelican point lodge, Erongo and Okonjima. It was well equilibrated in terms of number of nights in the same accommodation and the number of km.... Once again, many thanks for all your advice, your patience and your professionalism, the trip was amazing. It was really a pleasure again to work with Go2Africa and with you. I am already thinking of my next trip!
