Stop At: Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Your guide will explain the nature and characteristics of these shore birds. Continue along the coast and stop to take a closer look at a ship wreck. Your guide will relate the history of this wreck. Inspect some endemic lichen-fields which occur near Cape Cross.

Stop At: Cape cross, Namibia

Proceed to Cape Cross seal reserve. Here in 1486 a Portuguese explorer named Diego Cao, the first European to set foot in Namibia, erected a stone cross in honour of King Juan of Portugal. Today there is a large colony of Cape Fur Seals which can be viewed at close quarters and is an experience of a lifetime. Since the introduction of legislation controlling the utilisation of seals in Namibia in 1922 the seal population at Cape Cross has increased to more than 250,000. Your guide will provide all relevant information about the seals.
