Spitzkoppe – Swakopmund, Namibia
We leave the beautiful Spitzkoppe and make our way to the Atlantic coast and Swakopmund which is a smaller town reminiscent of Namibia’s colonial past but infused with modern adventure-orientated attractions. Swakopmund is Namibia’s chief seaside resort. Slotted in neatly between the desert and ocean, it is an enchanting coastal oasis. You are welcome to try some adventurous desert-based activities such as quad biking, sand boarding, skydiving (weather permitting) and much more. The choice of what you’d like to do is all up to you after we receive a full briefing of other optional activities that will take place during our stay here. For anyone wishing to take an adventure break, you are encouraged to take some time for yourself and see what the town has to offer. This includes shopping, restaurants, museums, aquariums and art galleries. Otherwise, you could simply take a stroll along the promenade to admire the ocean and to indulge in the town’s café culture.
The next day is free to enjoy all this quaint seaside town has to offer – from the many optional activities to the German patisseries, cafés and restaurants.
N.B: 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 80-150 per meal). Relax and enjoy these days at your own leisure.
