Swakopmund is one of the most captivating colonial towns in Africa. Facing the South Atlantic and surrounded on three sides by the Namib Desert, it is Namibia's premier holiday resort.
With a fascinating architecture of extravagant pastel-coloured buildings, turrets, and towers, Swakopmund resembles a mirage in the hazy morning fog of the desert.
There's plenty to do around the town, but most people come for the sea, the desert (especially the Namib-Naukluft National Park) and the fine collection of German colonial buildings.
