Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Skeleton Coast, 60km north of Henties Bay Cape Cross Seal Reserve Namibia

We travel along the coast in a northerly direction and visit some salt-pans where Flamingos can be seen. We continue along the coast and stop once more to take a closer look at a ship wreck. We also inspect some lichen-fields next to the road. Afterwards we proceed to the Cape Cross Seal Reserve. Here in 1486 a Portuguese explorer named Diego Cao, the first European to set foot in Namibia, erected a stone cross in honour of King Juan I of Portugal. Today there is a large colony of Cape Fur Seals which can be viewed at close quarters and is an experience of a lifetime. Since the introduction of legislation controlling the utilisation of seals in Namibia in 1922 the seal population at Cape Cross has increased to more than 250,000. Our return journey to Swakopmund includes a short sightseeing tour of the small holiday resort Henties Bay. Henties Bay developed from a mere sprinkling of fisher huts into a very popular holiday resort within a few decades.
