A Transfer takes you to the coastal town of Swakopmund. Upon your arrival in the early afternoon you check into your hotel. With palm-lined streets and seaside promenades, Swakopmund is a popular holiday destination in Namibia. For the international guest, Swakopmund is a bohemian mix of German architecture and African rhythms, a laid back attitude with adrenalin activities. It is colourful, it is vibrant, but most of all, it is pure fun.

On long yet interesting and scenic roads we head further north into the Damaraland, one of the least populated and geologically diverse areas in Africa. This harsh, rocky environment is home to the elusive desert elephant, the black rhino and free-roaming antelope species. Accompanied by a local Damara guide we visit Twyfelfontein, a UNESCO heritage site with over 2.500 bushman rock engravings. After a visit to the nearby Living Museum of the Damara we proceed to the Petrified Forest – a geological phenomenon depicting the creation and metamorphosis of wood into stone and the Welwitschia mirabilis – the oldest living desert plant.
