The Stiltz Lodge in Swakopmund, Namibia, gives new meaning to the concept of luxury hotel. As its name indicates, the luxury wooden cabins at The Stiltz are built on stilts, ensuring spectacular views of the nearby Atlantic Ocean, Swakop river bed, the lagoon with its rich variety of birds and sand dunes of the Namibian desert.

At The Stiltz, attention is given to every minute detail. Each private cabin at the hotel and Swakopmund’s premier bed and breakfast establishment has been individually and creatively decorated, offering unsurpassed comfort. All cabins offer luxury en-suite bathrooms, tea/ coffee facilities, mini-bar, a small safe for valuables, as well as heaters and blankets for chilly Namibian nights. Special touches include rosewood door frames and handcrafted copper light fittings.

Each cabin has a balcony, where you can sit on custom-made director chairs and admire the peaceful surroundings. Each private cabin at The Stiltz are connected to the main cabin by means of wooden walkways.

The main cabin houses a restaurant where guests can enjoy a memorable breakfast with a view. There is also a small lounge where you can admire the scenery from the comfort of couches made from locally-sourced bluegum wood. Although the atmosphere at The Stiltz luxury hotel is that of peace and quiet, the town of Swakopmund with its restaurants and activities is only a 15 minute walk away.


 


Temba Namibia will tailor make your Namibian tour. Your tour will most likely stat in the Capital city Windhoek. In Windhoek you can coose between accommodation such as hotels and self-catering accommodation. They will include accommodation such as The Stiltz or the more luxurious Swakopmund Hotel and Entertainment Centre in Swakopmund. Make sure that you include Canon Lodge near the Fish River Canyon in your Namibia tour

BOTSWANA

Visit Botswana after your visit to the Stiltz in Swakopmund and ask Temba Botswana to arrange your safari. Let them include Drotsky's Cabins near Shakawe on the banks of the Okavango Delta in the far north-west of Botswana. You can spend some time at Ghanzi on route from Swakopmund to Drotsky. Thakadu Camp is just five km from Ghanzi on a private game reserve and it offers en-suite accommodation in chalets and meru tents. If you prefer more upmarket accommodation stay at Kalahari Arms Hotel in the town.

SOUTH AFRICA

The Stiltz recommends lodges and accommodation in South Africa such as 
Merino Inn Hotel in Colesberg on the N1 highway between Cape Town and Johannesburg and between Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth.
Sangiro Lodge near Bloemfontein offers accommodation in wooden cabins just outside the town in the Free State.  You can enjoy game viewing from your room at Sangiro Lodge.

ZIMBABWE HOTELS AND LODGES

Visit Zimbabwe which is a neighbour of Namibia if you go through the Caprivi, but allow at least two days to drive from Swakopmund to this beautiful country. TheCaribbea Bay Hotel in Kariba  is as special in Zimbabwe as The Stiltz is in Namibia. If you decided to fly from Swakopmund to Zimbabwe you will need to spend a night in the Harare Cresta Lodge which is five kilometers from the city centre. Inn on the Vumba is a boutique hotel with a very English style in the Vumba Mountains near Mutare in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe while Great Zimbabwe Hotel is the closest hotel to the Great Zimbabwe Monument.  Include at least these two hotels in your Zimbabwe safari. If you prefer self-catering accommodation the Stiltz recommends Victoria Falls Rest Camp within in walking distance from Victoria Falls.
