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.
Step out of the city life by going to Long Beach Leisure Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get a sense of the local culture at German Evangelical Lutheran Church and Swakopmund Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Swakopmund side-trips: Spitzkoppe (in Damaraland) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Walvis Bay). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Moon Landscape, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, stroll through Welwitschia Plains, and look for gifts at Die Muschel.
