There is only one road into Lüderitz, and the sand blows over it creating mini drifts and dunes and grains swirl in the air.

Bulldozers work around the clock to keep the road open.

Reaching the coast, the town of Lüderitz is fascinating, a real outpost with turn of the century architecture and the ghost towns of the diamond boom nearby, preserved by the sands of the desert.

Penguins and flamingos

There’s also the penguin colony at Halifax Island to visit and we recommend just walking with the flamingos on the beaches south of Lüderitz. There, you will find shells and ghost crabs and are unlikely to see another soul.
