Swakopmund & Walvis Bay

Holidays to Swakopmund & Walvis Bay

Namibia’s two main coastal towns, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, share the same stretch of coastline – but have very little in common in terms character. Visit ‘Swakop’ for a wider range of hotels and restaurants, and Walvis Bay for some great birdwatching opportunities. Both towns offer a wide variety of activities, including, kayaking with Cape fur seals, birdwatching excursions and drives around the sand dunes. For the more adventurous, there is a whole host of extreme sports for you to try your hand at, such as sandboarding or skydiving (to name a few!). A holiday to Swakopmund and Walvis Bay works nicely as part of a tour visiting other areas of Namibia, as you can see in our Trip Ideas below.
