Brown fur seals


... previously known as Cape fur seals and sometimes cited as being sea lions, inhabit the coasts of southern African roughly from Namibia, around the Cape of Good Hope and east as far as Port Elizabeth.

In South Africa colonies are mainly located on small and isolated offshore islands, which can be visited by boat from Hout Bay near Cape Town and from Gansbaai and Kleinbaai near Hermanus.

In Namibia there are two major seal colonies of up to 100,000 animals located on mainland beaches ...

The best known is at Cape Cross, north of Swakopmund, which is easily visited by road.

But by far the most exciting seal colony ... one which is able to provide a wildlife experience of the highest order ... is at the incredibly remote Cape Fria, in the enormous private concession that forms Skeleton Coast North.
