What to see in Walvis Bay

Walvis Bay’s unique position between sea and sand offers a varied tapestry of experiences, marking it as an essential stop for those arriving at its bustling port.

The Walvis Bay Lagoon is an unmissable natural spectacle. This Ramsar Wetland Site draws a rich variety of marine life and an impressive array of bird species, making it a haven for nature lovers and birdwatchers alike. It’s particularly famous for its massive flocks of flamingos that stand in stark, beautiful contrast to the blue waters. Guided tours are available, providing valuable insights into the lagoon’s ecological importance and the diverse birds it hosts. Visitors can also enjoy the tranquil environment with a walk along the waterfront or indulge in a quiet family picnic with the soundtrack of waves and bird calls in the background.

Beyond the city’s borders, the landscape unfolds into the vast Namib Desert, home to some of the world’s most picturesque and ancient sand dunes. For the adventurers, Dune 7 is a must-visit for its challenging climb and rewarding panoramic views of where the desert meets the sea. Those looking for excitement can try sandboarding down its vast slopes. The desert also offers thrilling quad biking experiences, with guided tours available for navigating the rolling sands. For a gentler pace, 4x4 tours deliver captivating experiences, often ending with sundowners to watch the breathtaking scene of the sun setting over the horizon.

The ocean’s bounty is not to be missed either. Walvis Bay’s waters are rich with marine life, offering a plethora of opportunities for close encounters with the inhabitants of the sea. Boat tours are a popular choice for dolphin and seal watching, with these playful animals often approaching the vessels out of curiosity. For a more interactive experience, visitors can engage in kayaking tours and paddling in the calm bay waters alongside seals, dolphins and various birds. There’s also the option of joining fishing expeditions, as the waters here are rich with a diverse fish population, promising a rewarding experience for angling enthusiasts.
