Namibia’s Diamond Coast is the stuff of legends – home to ghost towns and living fossils as well as an extensive array of natural attractions and wildlife. The Diamond Coast stretches along the country’s coastline and is bordered by the desolate Namib Desert, the oldest in the world, and the South Atlantic Ocean.
Swakopmund is the main town in this region and is well known as the ‘adrenaline capital’ of the country and there is something on offer for everyone! For those looking for adventure, quad biking in the dunes or dune carting is a popular option as is sand boarding and for an aerial view of this stark landscape, there is the option of a hot air balloon ride. The town itself is very pretty with cafes situated alongside the white sand beaches, art galleries, interesting shops and even an aquarium.
