Swakopmund
Swakopmund is a coastal city in Namibia, west of the capital, Windhoek. Its sandy beaches face the Atlantic Ocean. Established by German colonists in 1892, the city’s colonial landmarks include the Swakopmund Lighthouse and the Mole, an old sea wall. Next to the lighthouse, the Swakopmund Museum documents Namibian history. Inland, the elegant Swakopmund Railway Station, now a hotel, also dates to the colonial era.

The Swakopmund Camel Farm is based just 12kms outside Swakopmund and is the perfect place to escape for a unique outing. The farm was established some 30 years ago along the Swakop River Valley and is home to a caravan of camels, a traditional farm yard with cows, chickens, geese and donkeys. Our camel rides are great fun for all ages, you're welcome as a visitor on your own or as a school group, and remember, that it is a wonderful time even if there is hot or cold wind blowing. The farm even has an indigenous desert garden with a collection of unique Namibian flora.

This half day desert tour concentrates on exploring the local dune-belt between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. Come explore the Namib Desert and discover its many wonders. Namib, which means vast and empty, leaves images of total desolation to the onlooker. This is true to a certain degree, but the contrary, the life giving fog supports a wealth of fauna and flora. Come explore this wealth of life with us. Sidewinder Snakes, White Lady Spiders, Namaqua Chameleons, Dancing Lizards and much more can be seen. Excellent photographic opportunity.
