The Welwitschia Drive is definitely worthwhile while in Swakopmund or Walvis Bay. There are 13 markers along the drive that explain the different things you can see in such a beautiful and eerie landscape. Make sure you go all the way to where the oldest Welwitschia plant is.
We were a little disillusioned by all the mining and likely polluting that is going on around the drive. It was a little scary to see devices to measure the amount of uranium pollution all along the drive. Hopefully, some environmental organization is involved!
