Things to do when in Swakopmund

Swakopmund offers a lot of activities and adventures to keep you busy.   Also  look under Tour Operators for  various well organised and experienced vendors.

But apart from the organised activitites, there is so much more to keep you busy... Angling from the beach is a day adventure for the whole family.  Remember to take out an angling permit from the Ministry of Fishing and Marine resources..(Fisheries research and information centre) Tel: 410 1000,   angling can be done from Sandwhich Harbour south of Walvis Bay to as far north as Mile 108, but around Swakopmund  you can try at  Vierkantklip, mile 4,  Salt Pans, Mile 8, Mile 14, and further north.

Enjoy a day at the beach, wide open and clean white sandy beaches await you.  Or spend the day at the well known Mole basin with its protected beach area.  There is also a kiddies swimming pool and playground and two restaurants.

Visit the aquarium at the Fishing research and information centre, go horse riding in the Swakop River or treat yourself and family to a Camel ride.  Visit the Asparagus project in the Swakop River,  drive out to Goanigontes, and visit the moon landscape, but treat yourself and take the adventure route (4x4 required) and follow the two track road via the Swakop River from Goanigontes follow the gravel road to the top and enjoy the awesome beauty of the moon landscape.  (Here you need a permit again obtainable from Namibia Wildlife Resources).

If you like Architecture, drive through the town and view all the well preserved old buildings dating out of Swakopmund's German era,  (see short history.)   Do not miss out on visiting the  Woermann Tower  from where you can enjoy the most fantastic views of Swakopmund.

Dinge om jou mee besig te hou in Swakopmund en omgewing

In Swakopmund behoort u nooit verveeld te wees nie, aangesien daar so baie aktiwiteite en avonture aangebied word deur 'n verskeidenheid goed ge-organiseerde en bekwame toer operateurs.  Kyk onder  "tour operators" vir 'n lys van operateurs.

Afgesien van die formele of ge-organiseerde aktiwiteite is daar ook baie ander dinge om u mee besig te hou.  Gaan hengel vanaf die strand by plekke met name wat al wereld wyd bekend staan soos myl 4, myl 8, Jakkalsputz, myl 72, Sera se gat ens.  Dit kan 'n heerlike dag uit wees vir die hele gesin. Onthou egter om eers n hengel permit te verkry vanaf die Ministerie van Vissery en Mariene Bronne  (Fisheries research and information centre) Tel: 410 1000.  U kan vanaf Sandwich hawe in die suide tot so ver noord as myl 108 gaan probeer, maar vir 'n dag uitstappie beveel ek aan om nie te ver te ry nie.

Of as u van son en see hou,  ons lang uitgestrekte en skoon strande is die ideale kuierplek vir die hele gesin.   Die bekende mole area het ook 'n mooi strandgebied en al bied ook swem en speel plek vir kleuters, en dan is daar ook eetplekke byderhand.

Besoek die akwarium by die Visserye Navorsing Sentrum (Net effens suid van  die ou bekende yster kaai of Jetty soos dit meer algemeen bekend staan)  of gaan ry perd in die Swakop Rivier,    of bestyg 'n woestyn skip, gaan ry met 'n kameel langs die Swakop Rivier... Terwyl jy in die omgewing is gaan besoek sommer die Aspersie projek .   Nog 'n heerlike uitstappie is na Goanigontes (spreek uit:  konie kontes) maar volg die twee spoor paaidjie in die Swakop Rivier (verkieslik net 4x4 voertuie) tot by Goanigontes, ry daarna uit tot bo-op die plato en verlustig jou in die maan landskap panorama wat voor jou ontvou.  (U benodig 'n permit vir hierdie deel verkrygbaar vanaf Namibia wildlife resorts.)

As jy van argitektuur hou,  kan jy verlustig in ons argitekturele erfenis,  daterende uit die Duitse Koloniale tydperk van Swakopmund, wat aan die ou dorpie sy eie Duitse atmosfeer verleen.  Meeste van die geboue is nog goed bewaar en in daaglikse gebruik.  (sien ook n kort geskiedenis).  Moenie vergeet om n draai te maak by die Woermann Toring nie, van hier af het jy 'n onbelemmerde uitsig oor Swakopmund en die dorp
