Namibia Cruise Deals
Located in southern Africa on the Atlantic Ocean, the country of Namibia is largely desert. Around halfway down Namibia’s coast, the harbour of Walvis Bay is Namibia’s only commercial port, and the gateway to the rest of the country. The coastal desert, the Namib, is one of the world’s oldest deserts, the winds that come in off the ocean have created the highest sand dunes anywhere in the world. Despite the proximity of the Namib Desert, Walvis Bay is home to several wetlands that support a large population of migratory birds, including flocks of flamingos. A short distance north of Walvis Bay is the coastal town of Swakopmund, originally founded as a German colony at the end of the 19th century. The major natural attraction is the Namib National Park with its so-called desert moonscape that characterises the Namib Desert.
