Spitzkoppe – Swakopmund, Namibia
Leaving the beautiful Spitzkoppe, we 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. Here, 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 check out what the town has to offer. This includes things such as 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.
PLEASE NOTE: For practicality’s sake, meals in Swakopmund are restricted to breakfasts only. This allows for you to take on a half or full day of activities (several of which include lunch) without having to rush to be back in time for group meal times. The town of Swakopmund offers a large variety of bakeries and cafes that boast lovely selections of reasonably priced meals. (Allow ZAR80 – 100 per meal.) Unwind and enjoy these days at your own leisure.
