An adventurous holiday town that could have been transported from Bavaria.

Swakopmund

Swakopmund looks more like a village in Germany than a Namibian seaside town, but it’s a lovely stopover for boating and seal watching during your overland safari.

Why Swakopmund?
Beautiful landscapes and luxury waterfront accommodations are just two of Swakopmund’s many attributes. This quiet town is ideal for adventure-seekers with activities like sandboarding, quadbiking, sea kayaking and skydiving. Hop in a boat for a dolphin or whale watching excursion, venture into the mystical desert landscapes nearby, or explore fine dining options right in town.

Swakopmund sits at the southern end of the Skeleton Coast, so just continue north to encounter the fabled shipwrecks and whale bones – but do take your time here. This is a great place to rest up for a night or two during an overland safari.
  • Quaint Germanic town right on the coast.
  • Luxurious beachfront resorts offer privacy and comfort.
  • Located en route from Sossusvlei to the Skeleton Coast.
  • Boat rides through Walvis Bay for spotting seals, flamingos and pelicans.
  • Plentiful activities including sandboarding and skydiving.
  • Excellent local dining scene.
