Alte Brücke Campsite


Alte Brücke Campsite
1 star

In the oldest part of Swakopmund, you will find Alte Brucke - one of the old guard from days gone by when only the most intrepid of overland trucks diverted all the way to sleepy Swax. Great for families who want to camp, but not in complete isolation. Yup, town (and good coffee) is just around the corner.

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Alte Brucke is as close to the N. American-style green grass camping as you can get on the coast with the bonus of Wifi at your campsite.

The campsites are spread out on a lawn of grass with concrete structures for a fireplace, an elevated area for your camping goods, a braai (barbeque), bathroom and a little roof with solar panels that power your spot.

You are surrounded by palm trees and placed in between all the sights and places you need. Yes, in front of you, you have the beach, behind you the desert and riverbed and next to you, town. Alte Brucke is family-friendly and the campsite is fenced off, so the kids can go running around and you can pull the cork out of the (second) chardonnay.

The campsite is not the only part of the experience, just outside you will find the Old Steamer, this is the Alte Brucke Hotel restaurant. Campers can dine at the hotel with a three-course buffet eat-all-you-like dinner that changes twice a week.

As great as the food is, there are more things to do and places to go than you could ever imagine in this tiny town. In the dunes, your options range from sandboarding and quad biking to sundowners and skydiving and everything in between. On the coast, you can go for a (cold) swim, a fishing trip, catamaran trip or again, just another great sundowner (we like that sort of thing).

The town is quiet, but if you are looking for good coffee a few small shops to tickle your fancy or just some interesting people, you will find it in this old German-style setting.

Swakopmund thrives on tourism and history, so you will be catered for wherever you go. Get your camera out, remember the corkscrew and know that you are about to get sand everywhere. This calm camping trip has loads of adventure in store for you.
