“Before travelling to Lüderitz, pause for a moment to study the country map and how the town is sandwiched between the barren Namib Desert and the windswept South Atlantic coast. As if Lüderitz’ unique geographical setting wasn’t impressive enough, its surreal German art nouveau architecture will seal the deal. A colonial relic scarcely touched by the 21st century, Lüderitz recalls a Bavarian dorfchen (small village), with churches, bakeries and cafes. Lüderitz feels stuck in a time warp, a perception that delivers both gloom and a certain charm.
In short, it’s one of the most incongruous places in Africa.”
Lüderitz is a interesting little town and the perfect place to relax. Walk around in our town and discover the interesting and colorful buildings. Visit Liz and Marion at Luderitz Safaris & Tours and feel the love they have for this special place.
