Namib Desert Experiences from Swakopmund

Namib Desert Experiences from Swakopmund

As the world’s oldest desert, the coastal Namib is most famous for its endemic dune species and extreme landscapes. The increasingly popular destination is easy accessible from Swakopmund, as thrill seekers, wildlife watchers, and adventurers are all enticed into the wilds for quad biking, eco sightseeing, dune cycling, and desert camping. Here are a few ways to experience the Namib for yourself.

Wildlife Tours

That the seemingly barren Namib can be home to so many native species just adds to the mystery of the desert. Take advantage of tours that provide insight into the unique ecosystem, and enter protected zones to encounter endemic species including geckos, snakes, and the strange welwitschia plant, which is considered a living fossil.

Quad Bike Rides

Gain an intimate perspective of the desert’s canyons, plains, and dunes on a quad bike tour that’s sure to get adrenaline pumping. Admire panoramic views of the landscape as you enjoy access to regions inaccessible by foot or heavier vehicles. 

Sandboarding and Cycling

Fitness fans can explore on physically active tours, some combined with other thrill-seeking pursuits. Engage your body sandboarding or cycling across sand valleys, blending sightseeing with sports for a uniquely memorable experience.

Camping Out

Immerse yourself the nonpareil ambience of the world’s oldest desert with a few nights spent sleeping under the sky. The experience can liven up an otherwise tedious transfer, too, with some tours beginning in Swakopmund and concluding in Windhoek.
