Salty Jackal Surf Camp 

Centrally located to easily explore Swakopmund, our Salty Jackal Surf Camp and backpackers is all about surfing, sustainable living and extraordinary food. It's what we love and live for. We follow the wind, waves and tides and like to share our local knowledge and love for Namibia with our guests and like to show you around. 

This is a relaxed town on our wave-rich coastline, buzzing with good coffee and nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Desert dunes. Mingle with like-minded travellers in our laid-back, personal atmosphere, share stories and good times. We are in walking distance to the beach, dunes, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs, a laundry, and more. Swakopmund is a small town and perfect for getting around on foot, by bicycle or by taxi for those late nights.

Our Accommodation 

Built in the 1960s, renovated in 2009, our eco-friendly backpackers hostel blends together old-world style and quality with modern, comfortable and simple living. Decorated to inspire surfing and quality food while also showcasing our breathtakingly beautiful country.
