Walvis Bay isn’t too far from the famous Skeleton Coast and Sandwich Harbour. Here you can watch seals, flamingos, whales and I have been told even hyenas will make an appearance from time to time. Definitely worth a stop, and you don’t have to get on a boat to set out to sea or pay anyone to see this.
Just wait on the beach for the show to begin. This wasn’t planned and we certainly didn’t have to check seasons when the wildlife flock here, so it may be worth a check if heading out to avoid disappointment. All along this coastline stretching either side of Walvis Bay beach, whatever the season you will still spot many a wildlife that will leave you speechless. Although I wish I could have gone in for a close look considering there was a low tide. I guess that’s for my next visit.
