Egumbo Lodge

Accommodation in Walvis Bay - Namibia

Egumbo Lodge is an 'elegant colonial lodge' overlooking the Walvis Bay Lagoon. This splendid location makes it the perfect destination for families and individual travellers who rate birding and water sports highly as part of their Namibian holiday. It also serves as the perfect base from which to explore the central areas of the Skeleton Coast including Swakopmund, Sandwhich Harbour, Cape Cross & of course Walvis Bay. Egumbo is a local word meaning 'home'.

The prolific bird life at the Walvis Bay Lagoon is the main attraction. Flamingoes, pelicans and many small waders abound. One of the most popular bird watching spots is at The Raft Restaurant, built on stilts in the lagoon and crossed by a short bridge. Birds, jelly fish and the occasional seal will join you for lunch!

Amenities at Egumbo Lodge include a restaurant and bar, wine cellar, lounge with fireplace, heated swimming pool and the intriguing 'whiskey corner'.
