Unique architecture and amazing wildlife! The harbor town of Luderitz sits snug between the thirsty Namib desert and the windy Atlantic coast of Africa. The coastal town was once a thriving German colony and the distinctive architecture and Art Nouveau style, bear testimony to the region’s colonial history even today. While the sleepy town boasts many churches, cafes and bakeries, the pristine and gorgeous surrounding landscape and varied wild and marine life are the real heroes of Luderitz. Recognized by major animal preservation groups, the coastline offers wonderful birding experiences, and you can easily spot seals, flamingos, dolphins, ostriches and penguins around Luderitz.
