Safari Enquiry

Sandwiched between the ocean and the Namib Desert, Swakopmund, a coastal town in central Namibia, is one of the most popular places in the country for travellers to visit.

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.

Swakopmund is a perfect base for exploring the coast, from taking boat and kayaking trips from Walvis Bay to spot the abundant marine life of the Atlantic Ocean to going birdwatching at Sandwich Harbour further south.

It’s also a centre for adventure activities – it’s easy to fill several days with adrenaline-pumping fun. Take your pick from sandboarding down the huge dunes just outside of town, quad biking in the desert or sky diving.

The Living Desert Tour is a wonderful activity for families to experience. Guided by an expert, you will embark on a walk through the Namib desert and learn about the unique plants and animals that have adapted to thrive in harsh environments.

Another great family-friendly holiday option is the Welwitschia Drive, a short road trip through the Namib-Naukluft National Park, showcasing some of the most interesting and unique sights, including the oldest welwitschia plant in the world, estimated to be over 1500 years old.
