Travel Tips from people who've been to Walvisbaai
An excellent place to see Pink Flamingos...make sure you take lots more film/memory cards than you think you need, as it can be addictive taking photos of these beautiful birds when they are so close up. Go for a drive out past the salt flats to the beach too - you may also see seals.
Walvisbay in Namibia is definitely one of the world's most remote locations and getting there is anything but easy. BUT, if you ever get there, you will be well-rewarded. You can head out into the Namib desert (the world's oldest) or you can canoe on the lagoon which is literally covered in pink flamingoes. You will be left breathless by these magnificent birds. At different times during the day they will lift from the water like a huge, pink cloud...you will NEVER experience anything like it anywhere else in the world. You can obviously go fishing. Horseback or camel rides in the dunes are fun. Protea Hotel is the perfect place to stay: it is small (about 30 rooms), unpretentious and colorful. The food is wonderful.
Walvis Bay is a beatiful town, with lots of things to do. From the dunes to the Pelican Island you will find many attractions here. The naighbour town of Suakopmund, with it's German inheritage is also worthed seeing, and maybe offers better accommodation than Walvis.
