The unique and interesting Swakopmund is like a central European island in the middle of an African desert, with old German architecture, streets lined with palms, and promenades running along the beaches. Leaving the heat of the Namib Desert visitors arrive at Swakopmund on the Skeleton Coast with its cold water and misty shores.
The town offers rest and relaxation and is surrounded by the Namib-Naukluft Park with its beautiful sand-dunes. The dunes offer a range of activities including sandboarding, dune carting, and quad biking, or head to the ocean for some great deep sea and beach angling. Alternatively for those who enjoy a more relaxed vacation, Swakopmund is home to numerous restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and museums to keep you entertained.
