Introducing The Northern Reaches

From Windhoek, the Khomas Hochland mountain range stretches west to form a scenic transition zone between the high central plateau and the Namib plains. En route to Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, this scenic landform facilitates some truly pleasurable driving, though the real highlight awaits you on the coast. Just as the road begins to flatten out, falling in line with surrounding gravel plains, deep orange dunes appear on your left, while your nose first catches the salty breeze of the ocean just ahead – welcome to Swakopmund!
