In 1486, the early Portuguese explorer, Diogo Cao, erected a padrao or cross on a small rocky outcrop along the desolate and unforgiving shores that hug the Skeleton Coast. Battered by sudden squalls and fierce windstorms, blasted by the shifting desert sands and baked under a relentless sun, the cross remained undisturbed by Europeans for four centuries. Cape Cross has witnessed many a shipwreck and maritime disaster and is home to a replica padrao that stands on a terraced platform within the seal reserve.
The museum, within the lodge, houses many remnants of past settlers who relentlessly withstood the harsh desert elements to mine rich deposits of fossil guano and to harvest seal skins. The first railway line in Namibia was established at Cape Cross and visitors to the museum can delve in its historical value. Souvenirs, postcards, small mementos and the history of Cape Cross in book form can all be purchased in the museum.
Cape Cross Seal Reserve
The Cape Cross Seal Reserve is a protected area managed by the Namibian government. It is home to one of the largest Cape Fur Seal colonies in the world with numbers reaching up to 100 000 animals. It derives its name from the padrão (stone cross) that was initially erected by Diogo Cão in 1486.

Our event and function venues can cater for weddings, birthday parties, team building events or any form of entertainment and special celebrations.
Being rural and away from contemporary living, doesn’t mean there is a shortage of activities. Hiking, 4×4 self-drives, farm / game drives, bird watching, canoeing and picnics are just some of the activities for you to try.
For those looking to venture out a bit more, there are a number of attractions in the area worth seeing. Explore the ancient dunes of Sossusvlei, a must see in the early morning, when the golden light is nothing short of breathtaking. The largest game park in Africa, Naukluft National Park, is a wildlife enthusiasts idea of heaven, and the Gamsberg Nature Reserve is also in close proximity and home to Namibia’s fourth highest mountain. The Spreetshoogte Pass joins the Khomas Highlands and the Namib Desert and is the steepest in Namibia, offering some impressive views.
NamibRand Family Hideout
Only you and the desert. Our NamibRand Family Hideout is a converted and deserted home of Karakul sheep farmers which is remotely situated on the farm Stellarine on the NamibRand Nature Reserve, one of Southern Africa’s largest private nature reserves.
As the sole occupier of our charming and authentic farmhouse, you will be able to appreciate quality time spent alone with your family or friends. The Hideout is simply yet comfortably equipped for your essential needs and even wheelchair-friendly. It is a solid haven from the sometimes harsh desert conditions and evidence of bygone farming days still remains in the old walls, fences and outbuildings, which are almost buried by ever-shifting sand dunes.
Accommodation is mostly on a self-catering basis, but we gladly prepare meals such as half board or full board if booked well in advance.
We added an exclusive campsite to our accommodation offerings. Out of sight and earshot of each other, Campsite Orion and Campsite Venus are each nestled into the dunes, with a waterhole for animals and birds. The views are stunning and you are truly alone with nature, but have modern camping facilities such as flush toilets and solar-heated hot showers. Ample shade is provided for protection from the Namibian sun and canvas roller blinds for wind protection.
Opened in March 2019, campsite Jupiter is located in its own private dune valley and has the same facilities as the other two campsites; however it has an enlarged wooden deck with a roof and wind protection, a charging station for all your devices as well as a drinking waterhole for animals. It is also fully wheelchair-accessible.
Please note that limited cellphone coverage and Wi-Fi can be located only 5 kilometres away at the base camp in case of an emergency.
Enjoy the spectacular views over the vast plains and ancient blue mountain ranges after enjoying one of our activities on offer, e.g. 4×4 dune drives or educational walks with our qualified guide into the glowing red dunes of the Namib Desert for a close encounter with the fascinating variety of fauna and flora. The kids will love dune-boarding and the endless open spaces, or chasing after beetles and lizards scuttling over the sand dunes.
A small water-hole just 50 metres from the veranda attracts a myriad of birdlife as well as oryx antelopes, springboks, zebras, bat-eared foxes, porcupines and other African wildlife. With a bit of luck, you might even see giraffes! The exceptional surroundings and clarity of the air provide endless opportunities for photography by day and fantastic star gazing at night.
Slow down, leave the stress and pace of our high-tech world behind you for a while and relax around an open fire in the silence of the multi-coloured sunset, punctuated only by the click of barking geckos. Whilst on holiday in Namibia, here in the vast and ancient Namib Desert, nature still reigns supreme.
