There is an amazing amount of very different landscapes in our coastal region


The surroundings of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund has some of the most varied landscapes anywhere in the world!
From the Salt Processing works with it's incredible pink lakes and abundant marine wildlife to the tranquil beaches of the Pelican Point with striking photographic subjects.
Explore the Kuiseb river delta, to mud flats and sand dunes. We drive past the dune belt twice, once with gravel plains on the one side and dunes on the other, and then the next time we drive the coastal road, between the dunes and the ocean.
The Swakop River canyon is better known as the Moon Landscape, and one can clearly see why. It is simply out of this world! We view it from the top, and drive through the riverbed that carved these amazing rock formations. This riverbed is deep into the desert, and the contrast between the canyon and plains are breathtaking.
No visit to the coast is complete without a visit to Swakopmund, where we marvel at how people were carved out an existence in this hostile land. Bring your camera!
