Solitaire – Swakopmund, Namibia
We leave Solitaire today, journeying on to the Atlantic coast where we spend the next two nights. We cross over the Tropic of Capricorn and allow some time for some fantastic photographic opportunities. Swakopmund is cooler, with the Atlantic sea air drifting in off coast. There are some wonderful adventure activities for you to try out here, such as quad biking, sand boarding, skydiving, and much more. Alternatively, you can take a walk through to town where you can spend time visiting the shops, restaurants, museum and art galleries. There is also a lovely promenade on which to enjoy a long stroll, sip on a cold drink or grab a bite to eat. The following day is free to enjoy the optional activities available on offer here.
Please note: For the sake of practicality, meals in Swakopmund are restricted to breakfasts. This allows you to take on half day or full day activities (some of which include lunch) without having to be back for meal times. Swakopmund town offers a variety of bakeries and cafes with a selection of reasonably priced meals (allow ZAR 50-100 per meal). Relax and enjoy these days at your own leisure.
