Kolmanskop

Kolmanskop is a ghost town in the Namib in southern Namibia, 10 kilometres inland from the port town of LĂĽderitz.

It was once the home to hundreds of German miners desperately seeking their fortune in the Namibian desert.

But almost 100 years after Kolmanskop peaked as a thriving and bustling oasis, it is now a dilapidated ghost town slowly being reclaimed by the sand.

Tourists and photographers now flock to the area to see the formally grand German houses gradually sink into desert.
