Swakopmund Namibia 

Approximately 30 km North of Walvis Bay


We drove from Sossusvlei to Walvis on C14 from Solitaire, Gravel road all the way – approximately 380km – through the Namib Naukluft Park. A beautiful but long drive with some quiver trees as well along the way


Plenty of hotels and guesthouses.

We stayed at Alte Bruke – which is a very well kept camping site with private ablutions and also has chalets. No ground tents may be erected without an open mesh ground sheet.

This facility has a restaurant

Photo opportunities

Landscapes, small reptiles and the flamingoes at Walvis Bay where plentiful and close up. We took a half day tour to the dunes for the small reptiles – snakes and geckos which was beautiful.

The town is beautiful and has many opportunities for photographing old historic buildings as well

Time did not permit us to do the sandwich harbor tour – which I believe is well worth it
