Discover Walvis Bay by Hire Car

Walvis Bay, or Walvis Bay in German, is a major seaport of Namibia.

In addition to this economic importance for foreign trade, the name Walvis Bay is also very often associated with German colonial policy.

Founded by Dutch traders as a base for whaling 350 years ago, the English later took possession of the area until the Germans launched the conquest of Namibian territories from there.

With consistent climatic conditions throughout the year, it is worth visiting Walvis Bay at any time of the year.
