Namibia Suggested Itinerary - Namibia's premier coastal resort, Swakopmund offers adventure and relaxation - discover a charming city and dunes or simply relax on Swakopmund's beaches.


Swakopmund represents the optimal place in Namibia for both relaxation and fun. Often fondly referred to as the “playground of Namibia”, it has numerous activities to choose from, both for adventure as well as exploring the fascinating features of the desert and the animals and plants that occur and survive here. You can embrace the relaxed pace of this idyllic coastal town whilst enjoying coffee and freshly baked pastries in one of the many street cafe’s.

Alternatively explore the rugged, sweltering desert on a day tour, or view this awesome, forbidding yet soulful and liberating environment from the air on a scenic flight. Find your inner child and push adrenaline to its limits with extreme adventures such as skydiving over the desert or quad biking and sand boarding on the dunes. Take time to get the feel of this quaint town with its historic buildings, museums, shopping arcades and beach bar that has transformed into its own personality by the vibrant use of color and the bohemian lifestyle.

Declared as one of the most important wetland areas on earth, Walvis Bay not only supports a rich variety of birds, but also forms the habitat for other marine creatures such as a variety of dolphins, huge fur seal colonies and rare and endangered species such as the leather backed turtle, killer whales and a selection of whales.
