  • This is a tourist magnet. Badger your prices. Real Namibian curio's. There are a small parking available. Make sure you lock your car and keep valuables out of sight.  more »
  • About 30 miles away. From Swakopmund is a marina after it's nice to take a catamaran for about 3 hours to admire sea bream, pelicans, dolphins, oars and if you are lucky even whale. Food on board and lots of adventure. Go there absolutely!!!!
