The Swakopmund Experience

Between the golden dunes of the Namib Desert and swells of the icy Atlantic Ocean, the seaside resort town of Swakopmund goes about its business - in a rhythm all of its own.

With its Namibian residents, bustle of tourists, historical buildings, nature based adventures and city pleasures, Swakopmund is an experience like no other - with something for everyone to enjoy.

And amongst the town's captivating contrasts and old traditions, The Delight Swakopmund is a fresh breeze in the desert.
Few destinations can compete with the natural diversity of Swakopmund. Take a trip into the Living Desert, skydive over the Namib or sandboard down impressive dunes in the morning. Join a dolphin cruise, kayak amongst seals, give deep sea fishing a try, or simply take a leisurely walk along the beach in the afternoon. A myriad of experiences await you.

For all its outdoor appeal Swakopmund also offers the city-lover plenty to enjoy. Dine in picturesque restaurants along the seaside promenade where eisbein and sushi can be equally savoured. Amble through old-fashioned streets as you browse vibrant curio-shops and take in the colonial history around you. Stroll through time in the museum, enter an ocean wonderland at the National Marine Acquarium, or climb to the top of Woermann Haus for a prime view of the town.
