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.
