Welcome to Shark Island
Lüderitz is a harbour town in south-west Namibia, lying on one of the least hospitable coasts in Africa. It is a port developed around Robert Harbour and Shark Island. Shark Island Resort was the site of a concentration camp during 1905 to 1907 and harbored Nama and Herero prisoners.
Shark Island Resort lies on a peninsula in Lüderitz, Namibia and affords visitors sheltered campsites at budget rates, beautiful scenery and a rich history. Several monuments on the resort close to the main ablution building attest to this troubling time in the resort's history.
Shark Island Camping Accommodation
Campsites at Shark Island Resort
Due to the wind blowing at most days of the year, the campsites are built in layers with a stone wall protecting the campsites from the ocean breeze. Even with these wind-breaking rock walls, the wind can cause problems throughout the year and campers should take precautions to anchor the tents properly. If a view over the ocean is not a pre-requisite for the stay at the resort, campers should select a campsite on the harbor side (right side upon entering the resort) of the camping ground and add additional shelter against the wind blowing in from the ocean.
Campsites are spacious and level, but the ground is heavily compacted making it difficult to get the tent pegs into the ground. It is imperative for tourists to take sturdy tent pegs and a suitable hammer in order to secure the tents properly.

As the campground is large, additional small ablution facilities are spaced between the campsites.
Although crime is not rife in the town of Lüderitz, campers must take note that day visitors are allowed on the resort and campers must make provision for the security of their campsite while they explore the town and surroundings.
