Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa, Swakopmund is often described as being more German than Germany.

Marvel At Sossusvlei's Dunes
Make sure you have an early start this morning so that you can spend as much time in the dunes as possible.
Named for its location 45 kilometres past the town of Sesriem, Dune 45 is renowned for its elegant shape, which – along with its position close to the road – have earned it the distinction of ‘most photographed dune in the world’.
The Sesriem Campsite is perfect for campers who want to experience the beauty of the Namib Desert with the sun setting over the Elim Dune. Watch the stars emerging until they fill the sky above you and the clicking of the desert barking Geckos and distant howl of the Jackal. Sit by the fire and imagine what you will.
