Walvis Bay

4.6
A pleasant port city, Walvis Bay offers tourists a variety of urban entertainment options that complement its many natural attractions. Boasting a natural harbor and a flamingo-filled lagoon, the city remained part of the South African Union until the 1990s, well after Namibia gained independence. Today, Walvis Bay appeals to sports enthusiasts interested in kayaking, fishing, and kitesurfing. If you're intent on adding as many adventures as possible to your Walvis Bay itinerary, consider dune boarding and golfing in the desert. Walvis Bay is in Erongo Region. When using our Namibia road trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
