A traditional German village on Africa’s Atlantic coast

There is a distinct air of the fantastic about Swakopmund, the second largest city in Namibia. Approaching from Windhoek, it rises like a mirage between the arid desert and the Atlantic Ocean. This superb beach resort is packed incongruously with excellent German colonial architecture.

There is lots to do on your Swakopmund holiday besides relaxing on the beach and enjoying a coastal leisure pursuits. The city is a renowned centre for extreme sports. In the Rossmund Desert Golf Course it boasts one of only five all-grass desert golf courses in the world.

Namibia’s National Marine Aquarium is a certain stop on your Swakopmund tour. You should also considers Walvis Bay to the south, famed for its fantastic fishing and the incredible array of pelican and other seabirds that are attracted to its natural harbour.

Spectacular sand dunes rise near Langstrand on the coast south of the Swakop River. It is a rewarding way to end any day. Climb to the top of Dune 7, the highest in the area, sit back and watch the sun set over the ocean.
