Shipwreck Lodge

Skeleton Coast National Park, Namibia

With its expansive dunes and beaches, Skeleton Coast is among Namibia’s most stunning natural parks. It’s also among its least visited. This all-inclusive lodge, which opened in June, may change that. Its name and design pay homage to the region’s reputation as a hazard for boats, thanks to its coastal fog. Once there, guests (who generally arrive via car) can take guided tours of the Namib Desert, a seal colony and more. —Merrill Fabry
