Swakopmund - The Tropic of Capricorn

After breakfast, we will continue our journey to Swakopmund – a post-colonial town built by German settlers. We will also cross the Tropic of Capricorn, where we will stop for a photo session.

After a short break at the hotel, we will head to the pier in Swakopmund. We will observe local fishermen at work.

The day will end with dinner at the Tug restaurant, known for the best seafood in the area and a wonderful view of the sunset over the Atlantic. Be sure to try the oysters, considered the best in the world here. Overnight stay in Swakopmund.

5.day

Walvis Baz - Sandwich Bay

Today we will head to Walvis Bay – Namibia’s largest port and a vibrant tourist center. Our exploration of the area will begin with an optional several-hour cruise, during which we will observe seals, pelicans, and flamingos. With a bit of luck, we may also see whales.

In the afternoon, for those interested, there will be a off-road vehicle ride in a place where the desert meets the ocean directly. We will have the opportunity to have lunch on the dunes, which will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience.

Overnight stay in Swakopmund.

6.day

The Skeleton Coast - Cape Cross - Uis - Tin Mine Town

Early in the morning, we will set out for the Skeleton Coast. We will stop at the famous Zeila – shipwreck. Then, we will head to the Cape Cross seal colony. After lunch in the town of Uis, we will visit the Tin Mine Town mining settlement. Next, a short trek awaits us through the river valley near the summit of Königstein.

Late in the evening, we will reach a camping site far from civilization. We will have a communal barbecue or campfire dinner, and we will have the opportunity to admire the Namibian sky. Overnight stay in comfortable tents with beds and bathrooms tastefully integrated into the rocks.

The day will end with a picnic on the viewing platform at sunset. Overnight stay in Kamanjab.

8.day

The Himba village

Optional morning excursion to the Himba village. This is one of the dozen ethnic groups in Namibia that still live according to traditional patterns.

Given that, with the development of civilization, the life of the Himba is gradually changing, it is an incredible opportunity to see one of the last African cultures untouched by the modern world. Another attraction of the day will be a walk through the bush and viewing prehistoric rock engravings. Relaxation. Overnight in Kamanjab.
