This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Swakopmund Jetty, Swakopmund Namibia
During the colonial period Swakopmund was an important harbour even though the conditions were not suitable at all. Luderitz was too far south and Walvis Bay was occupied by the British.
Accordingly the germans were forced to use Swakopmund. Disembarkation of troops and settlers by surf boats was, however, a life threatening undertaking as the surf was very strong.
After the outbreak of the Herero rebellion in January 1904, it quickly became apparent that there was not enough anchoring space for the numerous ships supplying the civilian commodities and military logistics to the new German colony.
At some stages up to 25 ships anchored in the open sea at Swakopmund and it took weeks for them to be unloaded.
