• Description

Namibia's second biggest town and traditional "summer capital", is one of the most surreal places in the country. You approach the town through the endless, windswept expanses of the Namib Desert, one of the world's largest wilderness areas. Greeted by the boom of the surf on the notorious Skeleton Coast, an ever-present reminder of the treacherous and icy Atlantic beyond the desert, you move through mist and Bavarian spires and elaborate Germanic architecture rise into view.
