A visit to the Skeleton Coast of Namibia won’t be complete without a visit to Swakopmund. If you visit this coastal town on the Atlantic Ocean, stay at the Swakopmund Hotel and Country Club. The town has many examples of German architecture, and the luxurious Swakopmund Hotel and Country Club is housed in and around one of these – the old Station Building. The Hotel is reminiscent of an era gone by, but incorporates all the extras you will expect from a world-class luxury hotel.
You can enjoy meals in your room and there is also a round the clock room service with snack menu. Jacky Kandukira is in charge of the culinary aspect of the Swakopmund Hotel and Country Club. She hails from Namibia’s Herero tribe and specialises in traditional Namibian cuisine. Platform One offers a buffet and a la carte menu and serves breakfast, lunch and light meals. The Station Grill is the place to be if you want a taste of fresh line fish and other seafood…right from the icy Namibian waters! Don’t miss the Desert Evening, where they serve a delicious banquet in the desert.
