Details van Walvis Bay
With wetlands on one side and the Atlantic on the other, industrial Walvis Bay is a popular destination for water sports enthusiasts, birdwatchers, and those wanting to fall asleep to the soothing purr of the ocean.
Nearby Sandwich Harbour is a nationally important wetlands region home to over 50% of southern Africa's flamingo population as well as an abundance of other bird species.
There are few places in the world better for watching flamingos in the world than in the wetlands surrounding Walvis Bay. A birdwatcher’s paradise, Walvis Bay also acts as a gateway to Namibia’s huge variety of watersports including fishing, scuba diving, and sailing.
