Africa's second adventure-activity capital after Livingstone, Swakopmund is the departure point for all manner of tours that make use of its surreal location between the dunes and the sea. Daytime, moonlight, sunrise, and sunset horseback rides are possible with Okakambe Trails. Desert Explorers, Outback Orange, and the Swakopmund Skydiving Club can organize skydiving over the dunes, sandboarding, and quad-bike (ATV) trips. The Living Desert Tour is highly recommended, as is a 4x4 day trip to Sandwich Harbour, with its rich bird life and spectacular views. Numerous sea-based tours are also available but most depart from Walvis Bay. Finally, Namib Tracks & Trails can organize all manner of trips, including day trips a bit farther afield to sights like the amazing rock formations and bush paintings at Spitzkoppe or the seal colony at Cape Cross.
