Area & Activities
Salty Jackal Backpackers & Surf Camp is located in Swakopmund, a relaxed town on our wave-rich coastline, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Desert dunes.
For those who enjoy surfing, adventure and vast, natural landscapes - this is the place for you.
For adrenaline junkies - how about skydiving over the world's oldest desert or sand-boarding & quad-biking on its ever-shifting dunes? For nature & wildlife enthusiasts, how about a 3 day safari to Etosha Namtional Park or Sossusvlei?
