ghost town in the Namib desert
10 km from Luderitz
It was named after a transport driver Johnny Coleman who, during a sand storm, abandoned his ox wagon on a small incline opposite the settlement. The town started to decline after World War I when the diamond-field slowly started to deplete. By the early '30s, the area was in decline. Hastening the town's demise was the discovery in 1928 of the richest diamond-bearing deposits ever known. These were on the beach terraces 270km south of Kolmanskop, near the Orange River. Many of the town's inhabitants joined the rush to the south, leaving their homes behind. The new diamond find merely required scouting the beaches. Kolmanskop was ultimately abandoned in 1954.
breeding site for African penguins
Also referred to as the jackass penguin, these penguins only breed in Namibia and South Africa. Their population decreased by 95% over the past 100 years. They are on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It is feared that they might become extinct within in the next 10 years.
The discovery of diamonds in 1908 by August Stauch started a diamond rush, drawing prospectors from all over the world. A number of luxurious villas sprung up, which became known as diamond palaces. One of these was the Goerke House (designed by architect Otto Ertl), the villa of the mine inspector for a German diamond-mining company.
The Koichab dunes can only be visited while on a guided tour due to it being in the "Sperrgebiet". It is a brilliant stop for photographers.
You can visit the Elizabeth Bay Mine (another ghost town), walk on the Agate Beach, check for ships from the Dias Point and pose for a photo at the Bogenfels Arch.
