TRAVEL TO WALVIS BAY

swirl 2

Walvis Bay is Namibia’s second largest town, a popular fishing and holiday destination for tourists and locals alike, looking to escape the heat of the dry Namibian interior.

During the German colonial rule, it served as the territory’s main harbour. It is still an important harbour where luxury cruise-liners anchor. Boat cruises give the tourist the opportunity to have close encounters with the abundant dolphins and seals in the rich ecosystem where fish and other food sources are plentiful. Visitors can join a dolphin cruise or explore the lagoon on a kayak tour.

While plenty of attractions provide tourists with sights, sounds and tastes within city limits, the real action happens in the desert surrounding Walvis Bay. Quad-biking, sandboarding, parasailing and various other guided activities are available from adventure companies operating in the area. Walvis Bay is an exciting destination suited to both the adventurous traveller, and those simply in search of a relaxing holiday.
