Arranged around a central, grassy courtyard are the reception and breakfast area and some of the rooms at the Namib Guesthouse. The remaining rooms (a more recent addition) a stretch further where you also find a sunny spot to chill and ample parking. The rooms are colourful and neat. Contemporary in style and décor with clean lines you are left feeling relaxed with not a kitsch African artefact in sight, but with modern conveniences which we have grown accustomed to having around like internet access and satellite television.
From single rooms and double suites to a two-bedroom family suite, all are catered for and the luxury suites are complete with both decadent bathtubs and large showers.
The dining area is spacious and breakfasts are an unhurried affair, allowing you to plan your day calmly and with invaluable input from one of the managers, Silke and Nicky, who will enthusiastically recommend or arrange one of the many things you can do around town.
The ocean offers a welcome playing ground in this otherwise dry environment and should be taken advantage of with catamaran trips up the coast or out to sea, kayaking in the ocean, fishing or just soaking up the sun on the beach.
The Namib Guesthouse is within walking distance from the town – sample local cuisine at a number of the restaurants or check out the museum in town for those of you interested in the history of this area.
The convenience of its location and the outstanding management and friendliness of the staff makes this guesthouse an easy choice if you are coming to Swakopmund or travelling through it.
