Located in a quiet, residential area of Swakopmund, Namib Guesthouse is a small, eco-friendly bed and breakfast. It is conveniently located, just 10-15 minutes walk from the seafront and a similar distance to the town centre.

The Expert Africa team have yet to visit Namib Guesthouse and we're looking forward to doing so very soon – here is what we know so far:

The guesthouse itself sits on a quiet, residential street in the Kramersdorf area of Swakopmund. It is built around a communal garden complete with quirky ornamental sculptures and an outdoor seating area, which should make for a pleasant spot to enjoy a sundowner, if the weather is warm enough. Aside from the garden, the communal area consists of a dining area, honesty bar and lounge. Free newspapers are on offer to keep you up-to-date during your stay and free WiFi is available throughout the property.

We understand that the eight en-suite rooms have wooden floors, colourful walls and a modern décor. Satellite TV, tea and coffee making facilities, a safe and complementary bottled water come as standard. Each of the en-suites has a shower whilst the luxury rooms also have a bath. We understand that for travellers with younger children there is also a family room with one double room, one twin and a sleeper couch.

Swakopmund is well know for the broad range of activities on offer and we understand that the staff at Namib Guesthouse are happy to advise and arrange many of these for you, making it a good base to explore from. They can also assist with restaurant recommendations, reservations and more general area information.

Our view

We expect Namib Guesthouse to be a pleasant place to relax, in a convenient area of Swakopmund. The eight stylish rooms seem modern and comfortable and we are looking forward to visiting them for ourselves. We will post more details here as soon as we have had a chance to pop in but in the meantime just ask us for all the latest information.
