The facilities are in a demaged manner. 150 NAD pP are much too expansive. The platforms are in a desolaten condition. The platforms are used by the strongest bulls, weich don't you allow to pass.
There are a lot of animals, which died of Tollwut. Nobody cares about the cadavers.

Great experience. If you stay at the basic NRW campsite (4 places) on the grounds in the park you can enjoy the evening hours with the seals and schakals

This place is unique in that you can walk amongst thousands of seals with their pups and watch them in and around the water. Namibia charges high rates for these places, don't maintain them and you rarely get a smile but despite all that - and the overpowering smell - we really enjoyed the seals. This experience is rare in the world, for us despite it all definitely worth doing.

80pp plus 10 for a car.
Yes, there are many tourists. But the seals don't bother.
Since it is a concervancy the money goes to the goverment

Well 1000 th of seals here and you get really close to them.
But there is a huge BUT. I do not like that they take so much money and do nothing for it!
When we were here the fenced walkway had a open point and seals got in but did not find the way out. So 3 of them were death and one I could let out of the door. The fence is damaged long term for sure. They not even took the death body's out of it.
Also the Picknick house is taken over from seals....nobody cares about it. I think this place is only to make quick money.....

Report Check-In

Open from 08.00 till 17.00 hour. Go as early as possible to see the seals without other tourists.
In this month (December) they all had pups, they were even laying on the parking lot.
