Located on the Atlantic seaboard, the seaside city of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay offers a cooler climate than other areas of Namibia. Uncover a strong German colonial link in the monuments and historic buildings that dot the city and explore an array of cafes and restaurants. Experience sandboarding, quad biking, parachuting, paragliding, dolphin cruises, and exciting scenic flights and ballooning above the sand dunes.
However, it is the adventure activities from Swakopmund that really define it. Not always for the faint of heart, activities range from dolphin cruises and scenic flights to parachuting and paragliding over a sea of sand dunes. There's also quad biking, sandboarding and hot air balloon rides on offer.
Some 30 km south of Swakopmund lies Walvis Bay, the main harbor town in Namibia. If you happen to approach it from the north you will do so on a stunning ocean road seamed by mighty dunes. Attractions of Walvis Bay are the lagoon with innumerable sea birds, pelicans and flamingos and a variety of recreational possibilities, a desert golf course, a choice of restaurants and adventure activities such as sea kayaking, sandwich harbour tours and dolphin cruises.
