Swakopmund Cape Cross seal colony Day Tours

star-5
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.
