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.

There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, stroll through Welwitschia Plains, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Peter's Antiques, since 1983, and take in the waterfront at Swakopmund Jetty.
