Cape Cross Tours

In the late 1400s, explorers stumbled upon this rocky stretch of coastline while en route to India’s Spice Islands. Today, Cape Cross has become a popular destination for travelers to Namibia’s Atlantic coast because of its scenic views, beautiful bay and colony of Cape Fur seals. Cape Cross is a protected area, thanks to the country’s stringent conservation laws, making the three kilometers of shoreline a well-populated spot perfect for capturing incredible photographs of the some 200,000 seals that call Cape Cross home. Travelers warn that orphan seal pups and a history of seal harvesting can sometimes make for a sad trip, but the playful personalities and sheer number of mammals still make for a memorable visit. 

Practical Info

Cape Cross is located in western Namibia off the C34 highway about 60 kilometers north of Hentiesbaai and 120 kilometers north of Swakopmund. Plan a trip to Cape Cross in late November or early December to catch newborn baby seal pups on ocean shores.
