The road to Cape Cross is long and only offers a view of a stranded ship and some tables with pieces of salt. Cape Cross is located on a land point, where in 1484 the Portuguese navigator Diogo Cáo set foot on shore, founded this cross and almost immediately breathed his last breath. It is now a reserve for a huge colony of Cape fur seals. Around 80,000 live here in one place and in November and December when the boy is born, this number can rise to two hundred thousand! A wooden path in two directions leads you along the growling and mutilating colony. Below, right next to the path and the whole area between the path and the coast is littered with small and large fur seals. A boy who is looking for their mother, who is being nursed, adult animals that are lying to dry, animals going into the water or just coming out. It is a spectacle that will leave an indelible impression on you. The Cape fur seal is only found in Namibia and on the western side of South Africa. The males of the Cape fur seal weigh up to 350 kg, the females are much lighter and weigh an average of 75 kg. The smell of tens of thousands of fur seals is such that you better stick a mint-scented handkerchief in your nostrils. It may not look, but you do have both hands free to shoot or film.
