Swakopmund is a quirky coastal town where you can enjoy excellent seafood, beach walks, excursions to the wetlands or adrenalin activities galore.
The seaside town of Swakopmund lies between Sossusvlei to the south and Damaraland to the north. This pleasant town on the Atlantic coast has a distinctive continental atmosphere. Its many picturesque reminders of the German colonial era seem deliciously incongruous so close to the Namib Desert! But Swakopmund, with its palm-lined streets, provides a welcome rest from travelling. Here you can stroll along the beach, enjoy some good seafood and visit some quirky museums.
We recommend at least 2 to 3 nights here so that you can take a rest from driving and participate in some of the many Swakopmund tours and excursions on offer.
We arrange trips to more than 100+ destinations throughout the African continent.
