Penguin Islands

Swakopmund, Namibia

Following neatly on from Walvis Bay, this smattering of rocks and tiny islets that poke above the Atlantic close to the spot of coast where the erstwhile German harbor town can be found is another top draw for travelers in the region.

As the name suggests, they are occasionally dotted with colonies of the country’s trademark Jackass Penguin (an unfortunate name, we know!). However, those flat-footed waddlers aren’t the only draw.

There are breathtaking headlands and cliffs to see, along with a whole host of other unusual avian and sea life.
