    • where is the best place to see indigenous tribes?

      Namibia Mar 10, 2015 at 6:32 PM

      in late march i will be flying into windhoek and i have 9 nights before i have to fly out to cape town from windhoek. what i'm most interested in during my trip is seeing local tribes such as himba, herero, bushman, etc. i've done safaris before and won't be doing that on this trip.

      it seems the himba at least are in the northwest. should i just hire a car and head northwest to kamanjab to opuwo then epupa falls? then bushman seem to be northeast, might be too much ground to cover in one trip?

      any suggestions on itineraries, what places to stay, how to arrange (authentic) village trips would be greatly appreciated.

      thank you.

      Which tour?

      by EmmaN68 Online Now Aug 8, 2010 at 1:09 PM

      We want to do a full day tour whilst we are in Swakopmund and the 2 I have narrowed it down to are Tommy's Tours combined Living Desert Tour and Welwitchia/Moon Landscape or Turnstone Namib Desert tour.

      All the feedback I can find seems to give both firms glowing reports but I can't find specific feedback on those exact tours. Has anyone taken either or know anyone who has?

    • Buying fish in Swakopmund

      by JeremyCPrice Online Now Mar 28, 2009 at 12:13 PM

      We will be touring in Namibia later in the year in a 4WD with a large portable fridge/freezer on board. We will be spending one night in Swakopmund and, with the limited availability of food supplies elsewhere, we would like to stock up with some of the excellent local fish - white fish, shellfish, lobsters, anything that comes from the sea! Can anyone give me the names and addresses of where we can buy fish (retail not restaurant). We would like as many addresses as we can get, since it is amazing how often the place one is told turns out to be closed at the day and time we get there.

    • Swakopmund to Cape Town, possible modes of transport???

      by BrendanM Online Now Sep 29, 2008 at 6:25 AM

      Hi people,

      Myself and a mate are planning on doing an Overland tour from Victoria Falls to Swakopmund in Namibia. From there we want to get to Cape Town. I’ve tried to find flights but haven’t had any success yet? Can anyone confirm if it’s possible to fly direct?

      If not, what other options are available? Is there a train, or is the distance too great to go by any other means other than plane?

      Also, is Namibia considered safer than South Africa?

      And finally, what type of weather can we expect in Namibia around mid to late December?

      Any advice greatly appreciated.

      Windhoek to Swakopmund travel questions

      by duncanlbrown Online Now May 14, 2008 at 2:56 AM


      I'm thinking of taking a wee stopover in Namibia on my way to regular travel to Luanda, so I was wondering if anybody had experience of the Town Hopper Shuttle bus or the Starline Train which run between Windhoek & Swakopmund.

      all feedback gratefully received, thanks

    • Swakopmund - Must Do's

      by GlasgowLass Online Now Mar 30, 2004 at 7:16 AM

      Following an 8-day trek, I have one free afternoon and possibly one free evening in Swakopmund, Namibia. What should I be doing in that time to take away a feel for the area and not just sore feet from all the walking. Cheers Gill
