Hi, I will be in S Namibia in July and my task is to look for things to do with prices in Swakopmund.
Any suggestions (aquarium, museum, boat trips, sandboarding,...)?
Hi! We are going on a cruise ship next week that will dock for 1 day in Walvis Bay. We have arranged to hire a car to do some exploring on our own. We are a family of 4. Apart from quad biking and Dune 7 and doing a lot of photography of the desert/sea and the birds, are there any other places you would recommend, especially for a 9 year old boy to enjoy, keeping in mind we only have a few hours to spend and have never been there before? Some nice restaurants, bakeries, historic places (our 16 year old daughter is very much into history). I don't seem to find a lot of information on Walvis and Swakopmund (apart from the big tourist attractions and tours) but we would like to explore some of the other non-touristy gems in these two towns that only the people who live there or travel there a lot know about. Thank you!
Do you get a lot of tourist through out the year? What are you most uhm tourist attractions in Usakos?
Hi. how much would a hot air balloon trip/ride cost per person? children and adults and are there any weight and age restrictions?
I will have about 8 hours in Walvisbay and there will be around 1500 people on our cruiseship.
Will there be enough capacity for most of these 1500 to get on a tour to watch the pelicans & seals ?
Hi there. Does anyone know of people that can organise a day at the beach for kids? activities like volleyball, etc? kids aged from 2 years to 16 years?
please let me know.
Looking at doing a boat trip from Walvis Bay and I am looking at these two operators has anyone taken a trip with either as I can't find any reviews.
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?
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.
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.
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
Whe are a group of 10 people that whould like to come to Walvisbaai, or a place in Namibie where we can go riding with our quad bikes. Whe like informal accomadation.Where gan we go?
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
