Swakopmund

A unique African German inspired seaside safari town & a true favorite Namibia safari stop-over.

A Charming German Inspired Seaside Town

Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Desert on the western coast, Swakopmund is a one-of-a-kind town along your African safari journey. This is Namibia's adventure safari capital and a surreal colonial remnant and is also the ideal place to start or end your exploration of the Skeleton Coast and Namib Desert. This is a town with as much personality as it has ocean frontage and it retains a strong German flavour – from its cobbled streets and picturesque buildings to typical German restaurants and pubs serving German cuisine. This is also one of the much cooler destinations in Namibia, with its moist sea air, mist and rain sometimes surprising you in the desert.

German-Inspired Architecture, Hospitality and Dining

The town of Swakopmund was established by German colonialists, and today still the town showcases this by way of its German-inspired architecture, German-owned shops and traditional German cuisine. The laidback town has charm by the bucketload with its colonial architecture, oceanfront promenades, historical sights, cosy guesthouses, and excellent restaurants and beer houses where you can sample traditional German food and beer.

Desert Tours, Adrenaline Activities and Ocean Explorations

Swakopmund is the adrenaline and activity capital of Namibia. These safari activities will provide adventure-seekers with the opportunity to explore both the coast and desert during your stay. Some of the activity highlights include living desert tours, dune quad biking, sandboarding, surfing, paragliding, kayaking, boat cruises on the Walvis Bay Lagoon, seal colony tours, Welwitschia botanical tours and fishing.

Ideally Situated for Further Regional Safari Explorations

The town of Swakopmund is ideally situated within easy reach of both the Swakopmund and Walvis Bay Airports, which allows for effortless travel within this region. The town is also a favorite gateway to the Skeleton Coast and within a day’s drive of Walvis Bay, Sossusvlei, Twyfelfontein, Etosha National Park and Windhoek.
