Full description
You'll be met at your cruise ship in the port of Walvis Bay. After a quick briefing, head over to the lagoon to view all the flamingos. From there, have the chance to climb Dune 7, the highest dune in the vicinity at 132 meters (433 feet) tall. Enjoy a drink of water and then move on to see the Welwitschia Mirabilis plant, an endemic living fossil. Stop to admire the lunar landscape of the Welwitschia Plains before spending lunchtime at Goanikontes Oasis (lunch at your own expense). After lunch, you'll be taken to the old German town of Swakopmund. Explore the town at your own pace and do some shopping. Finally, make your way back to your cruise ship via the coastal road.
