Swakopmund is the activity centre of Southern Africa. You can basically do anything here from quad biking to sand boarding to skydiving. Our thrills came in the form of quad-biking and paragliding.
For the quad-biking it was great because they were able to split the group based on experience and how fast and extreme you were willing to go. Somehow we managed to end up in the fast group, but in the end it was the best choice as we had no trouble keeping up.
Paragliding is something that we tried once before in Cochrane and it left us wanting more after only getting to do one flight. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to paraglide off the sand dunes, and this time Jordan got three flights in while Kathie stopped after two. The most exhausting part was having to climb back up the sand dune for the next flight.
The other thing we should mention about Swakopmund is the food. Every meal has been outstanding. It's really just like being in little Germany (with a desert, of course).
