Swakopmund looks like an old German town nestled between Atlantic Ocean and the desert of Namib-Naukluft Nation Park. It is considered as the top outdoor resort town with many European tourists, especial Germans. There are many outdoor activities to do from the ocean to desert.
It was a scenic drive from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund via the dirt roads inside the Namib Desert.
We took a catamaran tour of Walvis Bay and saw a lot of seals in the water and on the beach and many species of bird like great white pelicans. To see the famous oyster farm in the Bay and taste some of the raw oysters with champagne at the end of boat tour was quite a treat.
We also took an educational desert tour in late afternoon just outside the city in the Namib National Park to see some little creatures hidden in the sand dunes.
The ride on 4×4 jeep on the rolling sand dunes was exciting and to observe and photograph the sunset was indeed a very special experience.
