NAMIBIA TOUR: Swakopmund

From Windhoek, let's travel west to Swakopmund. Swakopmund is a small city on the Pacific Coast, sandwiched between the dunes (of the Namib Desert) and the deep blue sea. It was originally founded by German colonizers, as you can see by the architecture, but now people from all over Namibia live here, many working in nearby mines.
