It is the perfect value-for-money location to explore Luderitz. It is one of the earlier settlements in Namibia and was found by Adolf Luderitz in 1883 as a trading base. Shark Island has a rich history.
In Luderitz there are many old German buildings from the colonial era, now framed by the harsh desert landscape. The town was home to a Norwegian whaling station and thereafter a diamond trading town.
The Lighthouse: There are 2 rooms with 2 beds each, as well as 2 bathrooms. Suitable for self-catering accommodation with an equipped kitchen.
Camping: Camp sites have shared ablutions, access to a 220V power point, a built-in brick fireplace and taps can be found throughout the site. Prepare for cold and windy weather as it can get icy next to the Atlantic ocean, especially at night!
When visiting Shark Island all visitors should report to the office in Schinz Street. Office Hours are 8 am to 5 pm.
