Kolmanskop Photography Tour

Sand blows across abandoned buildings. A bathtub peaks above the dunes. Is this the desert or is this a town? 

It was a town once, a prosperous place of diamond dealers and chancers. Then the desert reclaimed what always belonged to the desert. Now Kolmanskop is a surreal sight, a poetic symbol of nature’s duel with man. It’s now a ghost town, half buried by sand dunes. 

Few places in Africa are as unique, nor as photogenic. Explore Kolmanskop with a professional photographer, somebody who knows the most unique houses and angles. The photos you take here cannot be replicated anywhere else on the planet.
