Swakopmund is a popular seaside resort because of its old-world charm and relaxed atmosphere. Swakopmund exudes romance and history; a rich cultural melting pot of old and new. The town is an eclectic mixture of Bohemian and Bavarian, home to artists, hippies, strait-laced descendants of German settlers, stately Herero women in Victorian dress, and hard bitten miners, game rangers, safari operators and fishermen.

This Laid back desert town hedged by desert and sea, is enhanced by lush green lawns, palm trees and carefully tended public gardens. Quaint architecture from a bygone era adds to the time-out-of-place atmosphere of Swakopmund. Much of the distinct German colonial character has been preserved and today many of the town's old buildings house shops, offices, and other utility services.

Arrival and check-in at Twyfelfontein Country Lodge

In the afternoon you have the opportunity to visit the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein as well as burnt mountain and organ pipes.

BURNT MOUNTAIN: Just a short walk from the Organ Pipes is a small inselberg named the Burnt Mountain, proclaimed a national monument on 15 September 1956. The reason for its name is best evident in the early mornings and late evenings when the rays of the sun seem to set the mountain ablaze. Rich red colours mixed with shades of black and purple are quite strikingly caused by Manganese coated clay molecules. During the day, however, the inselberg is just a normal black colour as if the morning fire has burnt it to ashes.

ORGAN PIPES:The beautiful organ pipes are a fascinating geological formation located near Twyfelfontein. Strikingly rich rusty colours are portrayed in long columns resembling those of a church organ, some rising up to 5m high. Thought to be the result of the Gondwanaland breakup, fractures and cracks were formed as the dolomite columns cooled through the process of columnar jointing approximately 120 million years ago.
