Swakopmund to Terrace Bay
The Dorob National Park in Namibia is the first protected area in the country where you can find both natural areas, where animal and plant species live that need to be protected, and commercial and man-inhabited areas.
It is a recently established as protected area, in fact it was declared a national park in 2010, and it was inevitable that, at that time, in some places there were human settlements; but it was still important to define this new area because in this way the entire coast of Namibia, 1,570 km long, is a single protected area.
The Dorob National Park is located North of the town of Swakopmund, the C34 road crosses the park from South to North and ends at the Ugab gate, that allows access to the Skeleton Coast Park; along this track you will encounter some localities and places of interest such as salt ponds, Wlotzkasbaken, Henties Bay, Omaruru River, Gemstones, wrecks, Cape Cross and the Cape Cross Game Reserve.
