Welcome to Shifting Whispering Sands

Why stay in an ordinary hotel when you can have a home? Perfect for families or individuals, traveling for business or pleasure, the Shifting Whispering Sands Bed & Breakfast Guesthouse offers great style, comfort and value. Shifting Whispering Sands was established in 2005 and is located close to the business centre of Walvis Bay. We offer seven modern and well equipped rooms of various sizes in a relaxed environment and geared for comfort and peace of mind. We go out of our way to ensure that rooms and facilities give you that home-away-from-home feeling.

Walvis Bay is sandwiched by the golden dunes of the Namib Desert and the deep blue Atlantic Ocean, and is a major port and gateway to Southern African countries. Although a industrial and commercial fishing economy, Walvis Bay is a popular conferencing venue and attracts adventure sports enthusiasts and keen photographers because of its large Lagoon, outdoor dune and water sports, birding and scenic environment.
