Attractions near the Guesthouse Indongo
Visit spectacular Sandwich Harbour
A day trip from Swakopmund to Sandwich Harbour is highly recommended for the panoramic landscapes and flourishing birdlife in the area. Made up of salt pans and sand dunes surrounding the lagoon, this is a magnificent, isolated natural reserve full of flourishing flora and fauna.
Stop along the way at Bird Rock, an island home to more than 200,000 birds. Walvis Bay Lagoon and Sandwich Harbour are also home to an impressive array of local and migratory birds, including record numbers of flamingos, plovers, terns, pelicans and a variety of waders. You may even spot dolphins, seals and whales in the lagoon.
Meet Africa’s most terrifying reptiles
For an educational insight into Africa’s reptiles, the Living Desert Snake Park in Swakopmund is the place to go. Home to more than 25 species of native Namibian snakes, lizards, chameleons and scorpions, this popular park is definitely worth a visit.
Some of the world’s deadliest serpentines can be found at this herpatarium, including the black mamba and puff adder. Averaging 2.5 metres long, the black mamba is the continent's longest venomous snake, while the puff adder is responsible for more snakebite fatalities than any other species in Africa. Weave your way through educational exhibits and the enclosures of these fascinating creatures, and on Saturdays, visitors can see the weekly snake feeding demonstration.
