"The Spectacle Will Amaze, the Stink Will Disgust" Cape Cross by Waxbag

Cape Cross Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 40 photos

Cape Cross is lococated on one of the driest and barron stretches of land in the world, the "Skeleton Coast". This names isn't thrown around for just any reason. It is the grave yard for many ships and their crew after running aground in foul weather. Very little survizes here on land, but the sea is marine paradise, full of cold water nutriants. It brings the crill, the fish, the seal, and the shark. It also brings the fisherman. The seals come Cape Cross to breed and hang out. It is an amazing site to see thousands upon thousands of these creatures at once. The smell may get to you after a while though and you may have to move on. At least your photograph won't stink!

    Stink??? The English language fails miserably to describe the stench at Cape Cross! I swear that, despite many washings, my clothes still carry faint traces of that smell!
