About Walvis Bay, Namibia
Walvis Bay is an outpost on the empty stretch of Southwest Africa they call the Skeleton Coast. It was named for the whales once hunted here. Behind the town is the Namib Desert with trackless dunes inhabited by hardy, exotic desert plants and, now and then, a hungry lion or a ghostly herd of elephants. There is only one road, and it leads to Windhoek, Namibia's capital.

Interesting place. Dolphin and Seal cruise was good, but Swakopmind Sightseeing was so so. Guide spent our time visiting what looked like a thrift shop instead of GIVING us the required TIME at more interesting sites or attractions. The Krystal Gallery was supposed to be included when we booked the tour, but not when we took it. Went on our own and had to pay to enter.
