Swakopmund is the premier holiday resort in Namibia. The architecture and general feeling of Swakopmund is one which may be associated with a small German village, and the town seems to be stuck in time. Although in recent times a new generation have woken up to the tourist potential of the area Swakopmund still manages to create a feeling of timelessness.
Walvis Bay is one of Africa’s hidden jewels, set between the golden dunes of the Namib Desert and the cold currents of the Atlantic Ocean. The bay has been a haven for sea vessels because of its natural deepwater harbour, protected by the Pelican Point sand spit. Being rich in plankton and marine life, these waters draw large numbers of whales.
