Swakopmund Organised Trips

Dolphin & seal catamaran cruise

Head out aboard a luxurious catamaran to spot the spectacular marine life of the Namibian coast. Departing from Walvis Bay, you’ll head out across the waves as you keep eyes peeled for playful seals, leaping dolphins and graceful pelicans. In season, you may even be lucky enough to spot humpback and southern right whales as they breach, and enjoy the rare chance to glimpse a pod of orca. And with mola mola and leatherback turtles also spotted in the area, there’s plenty to keep a look out for.

Living desert

Uncover the living desert on a 4x4 adventure through the remarkable landscapes of the Namib Desert. While on first appearance this land appears uninhabitable and lifeless, if – like your expert guide – you know where to look, there’s a variety of extraordinary animals and plants that have adapted to life in this difficult and challenging environment. Exploring the dune belt between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, you’ll hop out to track animals and snap some enviable photos.

Explore the contrasting landscapes of Namibia, beginning with a hunt for some of the most fantastic aquatic wildlife. Enjoy a hot drink on board as you approach a Cape fur seal colony and the lighthouse at Pelican Point. Between July and November, you might be able to spot southern right and humpback whales. Taste fresh oysters served with sparkling wine before visiting Sandwich Harbour Lagoon (weather permitting), or heading to the top of a dune for wonderful desert views.

Sand boarding

Forget the snow, keen boarders have a new hit destination to head for – the dunes! This unusual activity is fun for everyone – even if your experience only runs as far as hurtling yourself down the beach on a body board as a child. For the more confident, you can stand on a snowboard as the instructor teaches you to glide down the sands (no experience necessary), but if lying down is more your style, there’s the option to either cruise down solo or in tandem.

Skeleton coast scenic flight

View Namibia’s Skeleton Coast from the best seats in the house on this scenic flight. Loop from the seaside resort of Swakopmund past mountains, rivers, little towns and a staggering uranium mine before reaching the untouched beauty of the Skeleton Coast. Haunted by the remains of whales and shipwrecks, you’ll sweep over this beautifully harsh landscape where the vast sea ripples against the burnt orange of the desert in this intriguing juxtaposition of nature.
