African Travel Concept

Swakopmund

Swakopmund is set on the Atlantic Ocean at the edge of the Namib Desert, and this former colonial town is famous for its German-themed architecture and culture. It is popular amongst visitors due to its old-world charm and relaxed atmosphere.

The distinct German colonial character of Swakopmund has been well preserved and today many of the old buildings serve a useful purpose – museums, art galleries and boutique hotels. Many inhabitants speak German and, in true tradition, there is an annual Oktoberfest (Beer Festival).

Seaside promenades, fine accommodation, palm-lined streets, a mild desert climate and beautiful beaches make it 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.
