As Namibia’s most sought-after holiday destination, Swakopmund, has in recent years become the main tourist hub of the country. No longer the sleepy village at the edge of the cold misty coastline, Swakopmund is now fast becoming the business and incentive travel capital of the Southern African region. The recently completed Walvis Bay International airport just a 40-minutes drive away makes travel direct to Swakopmund quicker and easier than ever before.
Situated centrally along the Atlantic coastline of Namibia, Swakopmund is the main town through which all tourists travelling in Namibia have to pass. The town links travel routes from Etosha in the North, Windhoek in the East and Sossusvlei in the south, and for decades has served travelers by providing a variety of upmarket accommodation establishments, unique desert activities & experiences, shopping and sightseeing opportunities not available along the long and winding travel routes that crisscross this vast country.
Namibia is recognized globally as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and in 2014 was voted the “fastest-growing tourism destination in the world”. Namibia remains an African destination of choice, offering travellers not only value for money but safety as well as a sense of awe and inspiration. Tourists are provided with high levels of hospitality, pristine natural environments (protected by law), and a sense of safety not available in many destinations of the world today.
Namibia is regularly featured on the top 10 destination lists in various media. Not only is Namibia desirable as a picturesque destination with boundless natural beauty but travelling to Namibia is affordable, safe, and provides a vast array of different travel experiences.
