Walvis Bay – Namibia
Swiss Tourism Awards 2012
“A Ramsar birding site”
Walvis Bay is an oasis flanked by the golden dunes of the Namib Desert and the scintillating currents of the Atlantic Ocean. The casual visitor is always quickly captured by the wide open spaces, angling opportunities and unique plants and animal life. The world renowned lagoon is a Ramsar Site and hosts up to 200,000 birds including flamingoes, pelicans, terns, seagulls and other bird life. In the harsh dunes the Welwitschia plant reaches a venerable age of up to 2,000 years, while shifting sands ripple over the bones of the horse graves. The more adventurous visitor can opt to explore the dunes on a quad-bike, catch bronze whaler sharks, ride the waves with a kite board, soar with a para-glide over the desert or get close and personal with seals and dolphins in ocean excursions. Boasting a well-developed fishing industry, emerging engineering sector, deep water port and an extensive transport network to leading African markets, Walvis Bay is a different kettle of fish altogether. The Municipality facilitates the development of the local economy and ensures the social wellbeing of the city’s residents. Through various socio-economic projects, the basic needs of the least privileged members of the community are also addressed while ensuring a safe and hygienic living environment. Whether you simply regard yourself as a discerning traveler or an investor with a keen sense of business, Walvis Bay offers a refreshing experience, unforgettable memories and unsurpassed investment potential. No wonder Walvis Bay is known as “Your Oasis of Opportunities.”
