Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup, your tour starts by meeting your guide at the Walvis Bay waterfront. After a quick briefing, head to your first attraction, Walvis Bay Lagoon, one of the most important lagoons in Southern Africa. Home to hundreds of flamingos, pelicans, and avocets, the lagoon is a Ramsar site, meaning it's on the List of Wetlands of International Importance, one of the biggest networks of protected areas in the world.

Next, head to the Walvis Bay salt refinery, where you'll hear about this local operation before continuing your tour by going off-road onto deep, loose sand. Stop near a shipwreck and the remains of an old jetty for photo ops, and then make your way toward the Pelican Point Lighthouse, where your guide provides facts about this historical landmark dating back to 1932.

At this point, you are reaching the very tip of the Pelican Point peninsula, with the lagoon on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Stop here for refreshments, and observe the local seals and birds while you relax. Afterward, head back to the Walvis Bay waterfront to conclude your tour.
