TRAVEL TO SWAKOPMUND
Swakopmund is set on the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean at the edge of the Namib Desert. This former colonial town is famous for its German-themed architecture and culture. Visitors enjoy the old-world charm and relaxed atmosphere.
The distinct German colonial character of Swakopmund has been well preserved. Today, many of the old buildings serve a useful purpose in the form of museums, art galleries and boutique hotels.
Many inhabitants speak German and in true German tradition, there is an annual Oktoberfest (Beer Festival).
Seaside promenades, fine accommodation, palm-lined streets, a mild desert climate and beautiful beaches make this Namibia's most popular coastal destination.
It is the ideal complement to a Namibian safari or a self-drive holiday, and a midway paradise between Sossusvlei and northern Namibia.
