The harbour town of Lüderitz lies in a special location, between the Namib Desert and the Atlantic Ocean. Should this not be special enough, then it will be the architecture in this town as many German colonial influences can still be found. Lüderitz is also known for the many animals that live here and the delicious fresh fish and seafood that can be eaten. Animals you might be able to see include flamingos, penguins, seals and whales. Kolmanskop is a mining ghost town in the Namib Desert and lies approximately 10 km from Lüderitz. Kolmanskop shows you how life in the desert really was. About 100 years ago, Kolmanskop was still one of the richest towns in the world, but nowadays it is mostly tourists that visit and the town has often been used as a film and photography location for movies and magazines.
