        Carnival Court is clean, safe and friendly and is perfect if you just want to party on Long Street all night. Being on Long St. you are right in the middle of the action but can't get away from it. Stayed for 3 nights and then moved to a place with some quiet. All in all a decent place, just be forwarned about the street noise.

        We have tickets for the bus from here all the way to Cape Town with a change of bus in Windhoek. The cost of the tickets for both of us was 1470 N$. While we loved this place, we would not have stayed here in Swakopmund for so long but there are only two buses per week and the last one was full. We were …
