Adventure capital of Namibia with something for everyone


Swakopmund is the seaside darling of Namibia and has also garnered a reputation as the “adventure capital” of the country. Visitors will be charmed by the temperate climate, old-world German architecture, swaying palm trees that line the streets, exciting adventures on offer and the seaside promenade allowing endless opportunity to amble along the glorious coastline.

Swakopmund didn’t get its adrenaline junkie reputation for nothing: daredevils can get their fix by sky-diving, Quad Biking, sand-boarding and angling off the shore or otherwise enjoying ‘living desert’ tours or languid catamaran cruises promising a chance to get close to the marine and birdlife in the area. The town is full of historical buildings and museums and for those intent or pure relaxation: cosy cafes and warm shorelines await.

Accommodation options are abundantly varied from hotels and B&B’s to self-catering establishments. Likewise, the dining choices are splendid from the Lighthouse Pub and The Tug to the Jetty 1905 and Swakopmund Brauhaus. Fresh seafood is a speciality, as is game and traditional German cuisine. Café’s and deli’s serve freshly baked treats and aromatic coffees in cosy and bustling settings. Craft markets are worth a visit, as are the numerous jewellery stores around town and the Crystal Gallery. On the coast, Swakopmund is a 4 hour drive from Windhoek and is also serviced by a domestic airport at Walvis Bay, just 35km away.
