Windswept and wild, the coastal town of Swakopmund offers an easy gateway to desert adventures amongst Namibia's dramatic dunes; the adventurous will love sand boarding and quad-biking whilst those looking for something more gentle can kayak alongside sea lions, flamingos and even whales and dolphins! With colourful buildings and a lively atmosphere, Swakopmund has plenty to offer for a few days.

Dining options abound and there is plenty to keep travellers occupied for a two or three-night stay.
