Last week I had the privilege to visit the sewerage works in Walvisbay. Well it doesn't sound very idilic if you call it like that. Well it is actually the clean runoff water that comes from the sewerage plant. In reality it is a water bird paradise. The kaleidoscope of colours are absolutely mind blowing. There are tens of thousands of greater and lesser flamingoes, pelicans, black winged stilts, plovers and all sorts of other waterbirds . Then for the backdrop you get the majestic dunes of the Namib desert. What more do want if you like visual stimulations?
