After Sossusvlei: Swakopmund and the coast or Damaraland?

Jump to last reply

I'm only going to be in Namibia for a short time, for just over a week, and trying to decide between a couple of options. I'm drawn to the things that are unique about the country, much of which lies in the landscape. I've done a fair number of game drives on safari in other parts of Africa, so I'm inclined to let Etosha go because of the time constraints.

Definitely have Sossusvlei as the centerpiece of my plans, right now. And will head to Swakopmund afterwards. Wondering if it might be good to base myself there for a few days and take some day trips to Sandwich Harbour, and to Cape Cross and do a flight seeing trip - up the Skeleton Coast or south to Fish River Canyon and Luderitz. or compress time in Swakopmund - doing a sidetrip there, and then head into Damaraland to Spitzkoppe, Twyfelfontein and surrounding sights.

Thanks.
