Celebrated as Namibia’s summer coastal retreat, Swakopmund has to be one of the most unique towns in Africa. Perched on the Skeleton Coast, this quaint town is sandwiched between the harsh Namib Desert and the ice cold Atlantic Ocean. The quirky German-inspired architecture, German-speaking locals and strong German cultural identity (they even have an Oktoberfest!) make for a rather surreal and extremely enjoyable experience.

Between Swakopmund and the nearby fishing village of Walvis Bay you will find numerous adventure activities such as dune boarding, quadbiking, fishing, dolphin and birdwatching – to keep you busy for many days. While frequent visits to the many restaurants, pubs and caféswill keep you well fed. Black Forest gateaux, anyone?

Both Swakopmund and Walvis Bay are easily accessible via good roads from Windhoek, but many choose to fly in on the frequentscheduled flights.
