You can easily explore the city and its sights on your own. Although only about 5 percent of the population are of German descent, their influence on city life is unmistakable.
Swakopmund is still regarded as the “most German” city in Namibia, and the renaming of original German street names into “contemporary African” has changed little to this fact. The unique mixture of German influenced seaside resort, African population and spectacular dune landscape make Swakopmund a popular destination for group tours as well as individually travelling tourists. Also, residents of the capital Windhoek like to flee here from the great summer heat, as evidenced by the lively construction activity having lead to growth of the city to the north.
Dinner may be (optionally) taken in a restaurant in the city.
