Swakop Dam is the place to hang out over weekends

Since the sand mining pits in the Swakop River in the vicinity of the smallholding Richthofen were filled with water, the new big “lake” has become a popular spot for daytrips. Over the past weekend many Swakopmund residents set up camp next to the lake for the day and enjoyed a swim in the warm water. Since the pit has been filled, sand mining operations at that particular spot in the river have stopped.
