Swakopmund Guided Day Tour

Explore the vibrant coastal town of Swakopmund. Learn about the history and architecture and what makes this quaint town unique. Head along the coastal road to Walvis Bay to visit the RAMSAR wetlands site at the lagoon, a birding hotspot. Discover the pink salt pans on the edge of the cold Atlantic Ocean and enjoy lunch at the harbour. After lunch we stop at the dunes to climb to the top for endless views over the desert and sea. From here we drive to the Moon Landscape, an otherworldly experience of a desolate terrain before heading back to Swakopmund.
