The Namib, the oldest desert on earth, reaches the sea. Our tour today was aboard a catamaran in Walvis Bay Lagoon.

Oysters are farmed here – they are cultivated on ropes tied below the barrels. The lagoon is also a safe place for ships that need repair to anchor and wait their turn in Walvis Bay shipyards.

Colonies of fur seals line the lagoon.
