The Raft Restaurant, Walvis Bay, Namibia

  Panoramic views over Walvis Bay Lagoon




About the place:

This unique Namibian restaurant is built on stilts at the end of its own jetty in the picturesque Walvis Bay Lagoon on the West Coast of Namibia.  It was kindly recommended to Bird and Dine by the “Fat Birder”, aka Bo Beolens – there is a link to his excellent website at the bottom of this page.
