From Walvis Bay Airport the drive to Swakop is just 20 minutes, after entering Swakopmund you stay on the main road till you reach a T junction Theo-Ben Gurirab Ave, then turn left and drive till you see the Kristal Galarie on your right, then turn right onto Garnison Street follow that road till you see Neser Street on your left (This will be your 3rd left after kristal galarei). Just follow this road till you get to another T junction and turn right on Berg Street, just follow this road till you see Sea View Backpackers on your left side turning into Schlachter Street.
