The Walvis Bay Lagoon is one of the most important wetlands in southern Africa. Its associated richness of bird and marine life led it be designated a RAMSAR site in 1995, therefore protecting its nutrient-rich deep waters. Expect to see thousands of lesser and greater flamingo and many other rare and special species including visiting migrants. This makes the lagoon a major Namibian tourist attraction in it's own right.
A section of Oyster Box Guesthouse faces the bay. Downstairs is the reception and lounge with an outside porch that doubles up as a beach bistro open to the public which serves a choice of drinks and light meals. The breakfast lounge and 2 terrace areas are located upstairs. Lunch packs can be ordered for those on day trips and activities. Light meals can be ordered in the evening but the owners/management can recommend any one of 3 known restaurants within walking distance of the guesthouse, including the nearby Raft. Similar establishments and bars are just a further 5mins drive away. After dinner enjoy a sundowner in their 'sheltered' lounge and bar.
There are 12 single or double rooms located on both the ground and upper floors. Most of the rooms upstairs have sea-views, some have balconies. En-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning/heater, DSTV hotel package and an in-room safe are standard. Wi-fi connection is available.
