Swakopmund

Nestled on Namibia's Atlantic coast and surrounded by the sand dunes of the vast Namib Desert, the resort town of Swakopmund enchants visitors with its distinct German colonial architecture and pleasant climate.
Venture out of the city with trips to Walvis Bay (Off-Road Tours, Dolphin & Whale Watching, &more). There's lots more to do: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, stop by Karakulia Weavers, tour the pleasant surroundings at Dune 7, and pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Peter's Antiques, since 1983.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Swakopmund using our trip planner.

Trieste, Italy to Swakopmund is an approximately 22-hour flight. In August, Swakopmund is little chillier than Trieste - with highs of °C and lows of °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) early enough to drive to Otjiwarongo.
