Quirky, like Swakopmund itself, The Stiltz is a luxury lodge on the edge of town hovering above the Swakop River mouth and its bird-bustling lagoon, minutes from the beach, the jetty and the town centre.
While a lodge on stilts is something you might expect atop a waterway system in the mozzy-infested tropical humidity of the Okavango Delta, The Stiltz sits four meters above ground with a view of the sand dunes, lagoon and the Atlantic ocean.
Spacious and charmingly decorated, the bungalows have thermally efficient thatched roofs perfect for Swakopmund's contrary climate, full en suite bathrooms and private balconies. With just eight bungalows, a family unit and two villas your stay at The Stiltz is secluded, intimate and tranquil, belying its proximity to the bustling town - well hey, you've seen the rest of Namibia haven't you?
We'll do our best to book you a bungalow closer to the river mouth. Eagles, kites, falcons, pelicans, flamingoes, sparrows, cormorants, orange river white-eyes, bee-eaters and hornbills are just some of the 150 species on record and an extraordinary number of these will pay you a house call if you sit on your balcony long enough.
The sea breeze, dramatic views and symphony of bird song and ocean waves in the background is sure to do one of two things: lull you into snuggly slumber with your electric blanket or spur your spirits in the direction of the reasonably-priced mini bar. From your enchanting abode, The Jetty and Tug Seafood Restaurants are a short beachside stroll away and with all this invigorating sea air, your appetite will certainly rise to the occasion.
8 bungalows, 1 family unit and 2 villas all en suite with private balcony; breakfast restaurant; coffee and tea station; minibar and fridge; laundry service; secure parking and internet.
Activities are outsourced to local companies and can be arranged for you. From sky diving and paragliding to living desert tours; sand boarding; quad biking; paragliding; low-flying scenic flights; dolphin cruises; fishing; cape cross tours and much more.
