EXPLORE ENDLESS DESERT HORIZONS

Under crystal clear skies and surrounded by huge, golden dunes, discover an adventurous culture in Walvis Bay. Perched across from Pelican Point, the city is sheltered from the rugged surf that stretches north up Namibia’s rocky, fog-bound Skeleton Coast.

Venture inland to the rolling sands of the vast Namib Desert for an exotic African safari to spot lions, elephants, giraffes, cheetahs, rhinos, and more, or kayak in the calm waters of the city’s huge natural lagoon.

Discover one of the world’s largest colonies of Cape fur seals at Cape Cross (where the first European explorer landed in Namibia in 1486), or be in awe of thousands of pelicans and herons that call the lagoon home. You’ll spot dolphins and seals playing as you stroll the waterfront Esplanade.

Peruse bakeries and boutique breweries rooted in German culinary styles, or sample game biltong, a savory Namibian dried meat snack. Fresh seared kabeljou (silver cob fish), or famous Namibian oysters—some of the most tender in the world due to the cool Benguela current flowing along the coast—are must-try local culinary delights.
