Add To Plan

Walvis Bay and the off-shore islands were incorporated into the Republic of Namibia on March 1, 1994 after being governed by South Africa for a number of years.

The Walvis Bay Lagoon takes pride of place as regards to scenic attractions in the area. Thousands of different species gather at these rich feeding grounds. The tour takes you around the lagoon where you get a chance to spot a huge variety of other shore birds and waders including sandpipers, plovers, pelicans and herons.

Enter the sedimentation pans of the Walvis Bay Salt mine and get real close to the birds with a good chance to spot Phalaropes, Grebes and terns which include the rare Damara Tern.

Travel further along the beach to Pelican Point to view a large Cape Fur Seal colony and a chance to see our resident Osprey as well as African Black Oystercatchers. Depending on weather and time we return through the Kuiseb River Delta with a possible sighting of the Dune Lark, Sabota Lark and / or the Orange River White Eye.

Please note: This specialized tour is only recommended for bird enthusiasts. Guests with limited mobility or guests who utilize a wheelchair can manage this tour with the aid of a travel companion. Guests are strongly advised to wear comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses. One set of binoculars and a birding book will accompany each vehicle.
