Swakopmund Tours and Travels

About Swakopmund

Sitting on Namibia's coast, just a few hours West of Windhoek, Swakopmund is the number one holiday resort town in the country. With its colonial architecture, leftover from its time under German rule, and abundance of activities and attractions, the town has a perfect blend of beauty and adventure, making it ideal for all sorts of travellers. Over the Christmas period, the streets teem with visitors from Windhoek and other parts of Namibia, seeking the relief of the cool Atlantic breeze as they escape the fierce heat of the inland parts of the country. With warm days and cooler evenings, Swakopmund is comfortably temperate and well worth a visit.

One main feature of Swakopmund that draws in visitors from around the world is the fact that it is the number one adrenaline hotspot in the country. Extreme sports are readily available here and travellers can take their pick from a vast array of activities including sandboarding, shark fishing and quad biking. For real thrill-seekers, one of the most popular options is skydiving. Nothing will get the adrenaline pumping harder and faster than being flown up to 10,000 feet before flinging yourself out of the aircraft, strapped to the front of your jump master.

Naturally, there are plenty of other attractions in Swakopmund that don't involve raising your heartbeat. A drive along the Skeleton Coast is certainly a worthwhile trip and will lead you to the Cape Cross Seal Reserve where the Cape fur seal comes to breed. Alternatively, check out the Snake Park, a small museum showcasing a range of different reptiles including some incredibly dangerous and fascinating snakes. For a more relaxed experience, take a stroll along the iconic Swakopmund jetty.
