800,000 seals shouting is a scene you cannot avoid shooting.
Cape Cross is a cape in the South Atlantic on the coast of Namibia, on the C34 highway some 70 kilometres north of Hentiesbaai, 1,000 miles from the southern tip of Africa. Cape Cross Reserve is situated 150km north of Swakopmund on the west coast of Namibia. The reserve is the home of one of the largest colonies of Cape Fur Seals in the world.
The first thing to think about when you get off the 4×4 is: “What a smell” and “What’s that sound? Are they killing a sheep?” Then, when you reach the shore the view is awesome. Really! 800,000 seals standing there, laid there as if they were dead, resting. All you see is spots moving, shouting… Some of them go hunting. It’s funny who seals move. It’s one of my favorite animals. It’s a pity the smell of rotten fish is so strong… This place is a MUST. I think you cannot get so close to so many seals anywhere in the world. I was said that there’s a man that breaks the rules and rides the waves of cold water there once a year. Of course, he gets arrested but I’m sured he’s happy while he plays with the seals.
