Swakopmund — 4 nights

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Long Beach Leisure Park and German Evangelical Lutheran Church. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Food Tours and Kristall Galerie. Explore Swakopmund's surroundings by going to Walvis Bay (Off-Road Tours & Flamingo lagoon). And it doesn't end there: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, see the interesting displays at Swakopmund Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Dune 7.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Damaraland.

Land of the Brave
Since gaining independence from South Africa in 1990, Namibia has sought to rival its neighbor in terms of tourist appeal. While it hasn't yet gotten up to the numbers of South Africa, Namibia tourism sector has plenty to work with. The desert and mountainous areas represent a real source of appeal, with species of classic African game animals, such as desert lions, zebras, and elephants real highlights of safaris through the national parks. Namibians are rightly proud of their country, and the myriad traditional villages, colonial German towns, and lively urban centers all deserve your attention.
