Cape Cross, located 142 km north of Swakopmund along the coast, harbors the largest breeding colony of Cape Fur Seals/Brown Fur Seals (Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus) along the Atlantic coast of Namibia and South Africa.
It's been reported that during the breeding season (November/December - we were there in late November), the population of seals may exceed 340,000.
Crazy fellow tourists awestruck by the seal covered landscape and breathing in the awesome stench of that new hit fragrance Eau De Seal.
