Zum Kaiser, Swakopmund and Pelican Point, Namibia
Situated at 4 Sam Nujoma Road, the Zum Kaiser Hotel (formerly the Swakopmund Boutique Hotel) is conveniently located close to the centre of Swakopmund and a stone's throw away from the beach. The property consists of 21 beautifully decorated rooms split between two adjacent properties. The spacious and welcoming entrance lobby leads guests upstairs to the rooms, and eventually to the rooftop terrace which boasts superb views of the old town to one side and the ocean to the other. The terrace is the perfect spot for sundowner drinks.
Each room is equipped with tea and coffee station, satellite television, air conditioning, direct dial telephone, mini bar, balcony and large en suite bathroom. The décor is fresh and subtle with a number of rooms having sea-views. Three of the rooms are family suites with inter-leading doors separating two bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and a DVD player in the second bedroom for children's movies. The hotel also has a restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining. Alternatively, it is located just a short walk from the Tug, as well as many of the other restaurants in town.

An excellent way to spend a morning is on a gentle kayaking trip to Pelican Point. A number of sturdy sea kayaks await and you will be guided to three colonies of up to around 6,000 cape fur seals.
The guided trip is likely to cover the riverbed, gravel plains and the magical dune field from east to west.
Sandwich Harbour lies around 30 kilometres south of Walvis Bay. Here, there's a reed lined lagoon fed by freshwater springs, a sandy beach and pale dunes dropping straight into the sea
