The Stiltz is a unique venue close to the Swakop River. The wood cabins have a rustic atmosphere with great views of the ocean, pelicans and flamingos close by. The town of Swakop is within easy walking distance and breakfast is a delight.

We were delighted to find that we had got the bungalow with the view over the lagoon, a perfect place to do some birdwatching in comfort. This year the pelican wasn’t there, but we had flamingos. Nothing terribly rare this year, last year in March we saw Purple gallinule, and also Orange River white-eye in the garden. Another thing to... More

It was a great experience to stay over at the Stiltz: The smell of the thatched roof, sound of the ocean, the quietness and being right in the center of Swakopmund town. The view towards the dunes, bird filled lagoon and ocean was wonderful. The breakfast room has a great atmosphere and the best view combined with a great breakfast.... More

Very spacious and beautifully furnished and maintained thatched cabins on stelts, connected with a walkway. Bathroom en suite with hairdryer. The ultimate luxury: electric blankets! The sea view is wonderful and an observation deck is a real treat for birders. Excellent breakfast served by attentive and very kind staff.

I've never stayed in a hotel quite like this before, with rooms built on stilts and accessed by raised walkways. We had the room right at the end, with excellent views of birds in the lagoon - flamingoes, pelicans, storks etc We stayed two nights in June, and it was very cold at night, with quite a strong smell of...

We do not regret to have chosen The Stiltz for 3 nights on our 4 week self-drive tour through Namibia. On the contrary, everything went perfect from arrival to departure. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Rooms are luxury and very clean. Breakfast offered all we needed. We hope to come back!
