Dorob National Park, Walvis Bay!

A couple of weeks ago I made a trip with a friend to Namibia, flying from Cape Town into Walvis Bay, with the soul purpose of learning more about the annual Seal Cull which is taking place in the area right now.

On landing we collected a car and drove straight into Walvis Bay, a city I had always by-passed en route to Swakopmund. One of the places that we visited here was the Dorob National Park. We drove around the lagoon and past the salt works and draining pans. The bird life is incredible here. The crystalising salt and colors enticingly beautiful.

Pipe taking the salt water to the drainage pans.

The salt crystals forming, the rusty red color is beautiful. I picked a piece up and it felt like rock in my hand.

This sweet bird just sat there and let me get up close to him with no desire to move. If only all of Namibia’s wild life could be afforded this sense of safety.

The processed salt, I couldn’t believe how incredibly white it is.
