Walvis Bay

Visit Walvis Bay

Introduction

Walvis Bay is another remote foothold of the colonial powers. It is a pleasant alternative to Swakopmund and a great base for bird watching or exploring the nearby Namib-Naukluft National Park.

Walvis Bay Lagoon is home to hundreds of thousands of birds, most notably flamingoes.

The name Walvis Bay, or Bay of Whales, originates from 16th Century Portuguese maps. First ‘discovered' by the Portuguese, the Cape Dutch then explored the hinterland in search of cattle and copper, before the British hoisted the flag.
