Brigadoon Guest House
Swakopmund - Namibia
Brigadoon Guest House offers both a convenient location in the centre of Swakopmund with the addition of the ocean just across the road. Comfortable and well-decorated rooms are arranged around a beautiful garden, complemented by outstanding, personal customer service. The Swakopmund Museum, the towns most popular beach area and the lighthouse are not far away either. Within walking distance is the post office, banks, excellent restaurants, shops and the town centre. In fact, you can walk just about everywhere in Swakopmund from here.
Swakopmund is the ideal seaside destination for individual travellers, families, the corporate community and self-drive tourists who wish to stay in one of the town's most popular, award-winning bed and breakfast establishments. Comfort and personalized service are guaranteed. Unpack and prepare for your onward journey in a secure parking environment, whether it be north to Twyfelfontein, Kaokoland and Etosha Park or further south towards Sossusvlei and Fish River Canyon.
Swakopmund serves as the perfect base for day trips and activities. Many venture out into the Namib Desert. Stunning scenery accompanies you across the gravel and salt roads to your chosen destination. The oasis of Goanikontes, the Moon Landscape and the Welwitschia Plains make for enjoyable half or full day excursions. Others prefer to relax in the old-world charm and savour the the seaside atmosphere. But there is no doubt that for many sport and adventure rate highly whether it be in the sky, on the water or the sand.
