Enjoy a guided tour around the ghost town of Kolmanskop

In the early 1900s, Kolmanskop was a thriving town, home to hundreds of diamond workers and boasted a theatre, casino and ballroom. However, the slump in diamond sales after World War I and the discovery of a richer diamond area further south at Oranjemund meant that the inhabitants started to leave, resulting in Kolmanskop being completely deserted by 1956. Uninhabited since then, the buildings have been overtaken by the shifting desert sands, lying knee deep in places and resulting in an eerie ghost town that is a photographer’s paradise. Learn more about this fascinating town on a guided tour.
