Rank : 8.9 (average on 8 votes)

If you know this place, give your vote:  

Coordinates : -22.974673,14.484272 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : Pink flamingos, flamingos minor, pelicans, knights of Italy, avocets and an incredible array of gambecchi, sandpipers, couriers, sandpipers, ducks and gulls. The best places are the Walvis Bay lagoon and the salt pans, where you can also photograph the Jackal mantle specializes in capturing the flamingos.

Recommended equipment : Require a tele like the 300 2.8 for birds (including a 70-200 may be fine for the flamingos) for landscapes in the area "Sandwich Harbour" or the salt, the 24-70 might be a good lens, but also something more "long".

Best months : I have been there in October and I observed an incredible amount of species, including step, we consider that in this period begin to return the migrants from Europe, as knights of Italy, avocets, etc. .. Settled instead flamingos and their predators (eg Jackal mantle)

How to get there : From Windhoeck by an asphalt road (B1 + B2) to Swakopmund, and from there south to Walvis Bay (in all about 350 km from the capital), there is also a much more direct way but is unpaved and therefore obliged to travel more slowly and the nightmare of continuous drilling, always lurking.

Visits : Shooting from the road leading to the salt flats, but also from the waterfront. You do not need any camouflage, if you want you can get out and lie down on the shore to take the same level of the subjects, and these are quite confident and approach quietly.
