Cape Cross in Namibia : heaven of seals

The reserve at Cape Cross along the Namibian coast is known as a major breeding colony of Cape fur seals, where the population has grown large and fat by taking advantage of the rich concentrations of fish there. The sight of more than 100,000 seals basking on the beach and playing in the surf is impressive, though you will have to contend with the overwhelming bad smell of piles and piles of stinky seal poo. Bring a handkerchief to cover your nose – seriously, you’ll thank us for the recommendation.
