One day in Walvis Bay.
Recently we were invited for a full day of adventure (09:30 to 18:00) with the tour company Mola Mola, in Walvis Bay.
At 09:30, we boarded a boat at Walvis Bay Waterfront to go around the Bay where pelicans and seals happily jump on-board, to the joy and surprise of the tourists. It is a safe, unusual, and a fun encounter.
As we navigate along around the Bay of Walvis Bay, the skipper gives local knowledge about the local industry, the oyster farm, the fishing industry, some facts about birds, fish, and if you’re lucky, you may see some dolphins swimming at a short distance from the boat. Free drinks are served on-board.
Then, about lunch time, we disembark onto Pelican Point beach for a fantastic braai. (barbecue). On the menu, there was crayfish, meat, local oysters, and delicious salads. Champagne and other drinks are also included.
At our own pace, a guide awaits us in a 4×4 vehicle to take us to Sandwich Harbour, which is a protected site, where the high dunes meet the sea and merge around a beautiful lagoon which is generally a meeting point for birds.
You normally reach Sandwich Harbour through the dunes or drive on the beach, depending on the tide.
On the route, our guide regularly stops the car for us to take pictures or to discover little animals living in the dunes, like geckos, Tok Tokkies, etc.
Mola Mola is more expensive than other local operators, but it is top quality and service.
If you ever come to Walvis Bay, it is really a very enjoyable trip to do for adults and children alike.
