Shadowed by the world’s highest sand dunes, this simple wooden outhouse offers a breathtaking backdrop. The red dunes of the Namib Desert provide a stunning display as light, colour and shadow change by the minute. This solitary toilet bears witness to the constant movement of endless skies and shifting sands.

NAMIBIA : Cape Fur Seal Colony

Posted by Sian August - 28 - 2009 - Friday Comments Off

Imagine tens of thousands of voices repeating “heeey!” in different pitches, at different intervals and all at the same time. Then you will get an idea as to the cacophony of the Cape Cross fur seal colony. The noise is nothing compared to the stench. 100,000 fish eaters with foul breath flounder over flattened, rotting seal pups. Many visitors pause to vomit as they leave the odourless haven of their vehicles. The family who colonized these toilets are the clever ones. They are the only seals with a bit of elbow room, and the toilets smell much better than the colony.
