Cape Cross Tours

Cape Cross
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.

Swakopmund Cape Cross seal colony Day Tours

This four hour tour has both a morning (09.00) and afternoon (13.00) departure. After picking you up at your Swakopmund accommodation, the tour leaves up the coastal road in a northerly direction. Cape Cross is 130 km from Swakopmund and along the route you will stop to marvel at the extensive lichen fields stretching away to the horizon, east of the coastal road. Another point of interest before you reach the holiday town of Henitiesbay is the “Free Republic of Wlotzka’s Baken”, some 40 km north of Swakopmund. This self-sustaining settlement of wooden cabins and bungalows on the beach is the haven of many a beach angler. Once past the town of Henitiesbay, the road leads past expansive salt pans where rock salt is mined and refined. Your guide will introduce you to the intricacies of salt crystals and saline algae, which are found in abundance.
