We drive around and find the overall place very clean and well maintained. Enjoy the flamingos, watch them dance.

This place can be such a gem, but it needs much attention. Adventure tour offices, two restaurants and a curio shop and that's about it.

We drove through Walvis Bay from Sossusvlei just to see the flamingos. Parked on the waterfront, and accepted a man's offer to watch our car. It was an incredible site, walking along the cold windy beach , watching all those busy, pink birds, shuffling their...More
