Swakopmund, Namibia

Swakopmund is a cultural, historical, and cosmopolitan city on the west coast of Namibia between the ocean and the Namib desert. The city is a bustling and exciting destination filled with a variety of activities. As a break from desert dunes and Namibian heat, the oceanfront promenades and coastal shores are a welcoming break from wild exploration.

Its colonial architecture reflects Portuguese, Dutch, English, and German influence. German presence still remains, especially in the cuisine with a range of beer houses offering German food and beer. Boulevards, street markets, restaurants, museums, and aquariums will keep one entertained, outing options for both day and night.

Swakopmund attracts both the city, beach, and adrenaline activity aficionados. Quad biking, sky diving, kayaking, and parasailing are but a few of the action packed experiences the city offers. Walvis Bay is another city 30km away where one can charter a catamaran, go on a living desert tour or visit the flamingos.

Swakopmund is the perfect station stop during your travels – refueling with civilization, the seaside, delicious cuisine, and cultural curiosity.
