Location & Directions
In the heart of Swakopmund on the Namibian coast. Just 5-minutes from the beach and close to the shops, museums and the historic heart of Namibia's coastal playground.
When to go
The best time to visit Namibia is between May and September, when it's cool and dry. Summer (November to March) is hot with heavy rains that sometimes make the gravel roads to the Namib completely impassable.
December and January see the main school vacations: so the coast is busier at this time.
