Driftwood is small, cozy well located and very authentic. Even though Driftwood Guesthouse is brand new opening its doors in May 2017, we have been in the industry for years, in our group we boast a lodge in Etosha, guesthouse in Windhoek aswell as a Hotel in Swakopmund.
I am a born Namibian, who loves travelling and the tourism industry.
The guesthouse is situated one street from the ocean, in a quite neighbourhood. Its located close enough to town centre but far enough from all the crowds to make it authentic and quite... so you can experience the real Swakopmund.
