Walvis Bay is the principal port for Namibia. Its harbor, protected by Pelican Point peninsula, provides one of the few safe deep-water anchorages on the Atlantic coast of south-western Africa. It is also a magical spot for birdlovers and a gateway to Namibia's hauntingly beautiful lunar-like desert landscapes. Visit Namibia's pretty seaside resort of Swakopmund, whose elegant turn-of-the-century German buildings belong more to Bavaria than Africa! Easily reached is famous Cape Cross Seal Reserve, home of up to 100,000 Cape fur seals - and the grandeur of the Namib-Naukluft Park, whose sand dunes rising to over 1,000 ft are the world's highest.

St. Helena (Jamestown)

5/4/2021

A tiny island set in the tropical South Atlantic, 1,500 miles north-west of Cape Town, St Helena is only 47 square miles in area, with no harbour and no airport. It lies a lonely 1,200 miles from the west coast of Africa, a rugged volcanic island that boasts some suprisingly fertile pasture. The capital and port is Jamestown. First discovered by the Portuguese in 1502, and annexed by Britain 450 years ago, this lonely South Atlantic outpost was where the exiled Napoleon ended his days after defeat at Waterloo.

Ascension Island (Georgetown)

Ascension Island was once a regular staging post for ships to South Africa. More recently it became known for its involvement in the Falklands War. Watch for frigate-birds swooping down to catch flying-fish as you arrive at this far-flung strategic British island colony and key RAF staging-post, with its hi-tech satellite relay station. Ascension Island is part of the British dependency of St Helena, in the South Atlantic Ocean, about midway between Africa and South America. It is about 700 miles north-west of St Helena. The small, volcanic island, with an area of 34 sq mi, was sighted by the Portuguese in 1501, but it was uninhabited until the exile of Napoleon to St Helena in 1815, when the British established a garrison here to guard against his escape. Huge numbers of sea turtles and sooty terns breed on the island. Georgetown is the main settlement.
