Swakopmund, Namibia

Nestled on Namibia's Atlantic coast and surrounded by the sand dunes of the vast Namib Desert, the resort town of Swakopmund enchants visitors with its distinct German colonial architecture and pleasant climate.
Explore Swakopmund's surroundings by going to Walvis Bay (Dolphin & Whale Watching, Off-Road Tours, &more). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Swakopmund Museum, stroll through Welwitschia Plains, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, and snap pictures at Swakopmund Jetty.
