Cape Cross Seal Colony

 

Here Diogo Cão acceded in 1486 the mainland in this region and erected a stone cross. He was probably the first European to accede the mainland here. Not only Diogo Cão found this place ideal to go ashore, but also the South African Fur Seal. These have established a colony here with about 250,000 animals. It is one of the largest seal colonies on the mainland. It's a pleasure to watch these animals while sunbathing or playing around.
