Walvis Bay Waterfront has good bird congregations, but we were told late evenings were the best time in terms of bird concentrations.

Lovely flamingos and a great leg stretcher along to the waterfront. Worth a visit.for the cooler microclinate in summer.

We really enjoyed going for a walk on the waterfront. The lagoon is packed with flamingos and pelicans you can just spend hours looking at them sitting on a bench. Very relaxing and just beautiful.

A good leg stretch walk from the docks. We enjoyed the Pelicans and the bay view, but this is a very sleepy town!

Walvis Bay is the perfect spot to take a short boat ride and get to see marine bird and wildlife. Seals, flamingoes, pelicans and more if you are lucky. This is a great ad on to the Namib Desert.

It's not very large, but the waterfront shops and restaurants are quite charming in Walvis Bay. What a cool oasis on the coast of Namibia. If you ever have a chance to visit, don't miss the opportunity.

Possibly due to the tide or season but the flamingoes were surprisingly and disappointingly absent - with only and a few standing around. We did however see pelicans that made the disappointment more bearable. We will be back!!
