With a long coastal border with the Atlantic Ocean, there are a wide variety of water sports available in Namibia. One area, known as the tourist activity hub of the country, is Walvis Bay, is the second largest city in Namibia, and the countryís main port. Situated at the Kuiseb river delta, between the Namib desert and the Atlantic Ocean, activities such as fishing, kayaking, boating, windsurfing and kite surfing are available in Walvis Bay. Fishing enthusiasts will be pleased to find coastal and freshwater angling, as well as fly-fishing available.

Experienced and certified cave-divers will enjoy unique spelology opportunities in subterranean lakes such as Dragonís Breath, the largest known underground lake in the world and Lake Otjikoto, with its underwater museum of arms and weapons from WW1. Although scuba diving is offered in Namibia, the visibility off the coast is poor and water temperatures are fairly cold (9C Ė 17C).

On the Kunene River, try white water rafting and donít miss the Epupa Falls which are not only beautiful, but also surrounded by interesting vegetation and bird life. On the Orange River, you can canoe from Noordoewer to Aussenkehr, or Aussenkehr to the mouth of the Fish River.
