great location for:

Swakopmund is a pleasant seaside town with a strong German colonial feel. Here, the cold currents of the Atlantic meet the Namib Desert and create a coastal fog that can roll some distance in land, providing moisture for desert dwelling plants and animals. This is an excellent area for adventure activities including aeroplane and micro-light flights over the desert, quad bikes trips over the dunes, sand-boarding, skydiving and surfing. 120km north of ‘Swakop’ lies Cape Cross, every year between October and December over 100’000 cape fur seals breed here. The sight, sounds and smell can literally take your breath away.
