Lüderitz & Sperrgebiet

Lüderitz is a harbor town from the German colonial era located on the southern coast of Namibia, surrounded by stark desert. Diamonds have been found in large quantities and all the surrounding area has been declared a Prohibited Area, or Sperrgebiet. Near Lüderitz, lies Kolmanskuppe, an abandoned diamond mining town from the early 1900's, which has been invaded by the sand and is now a ghost town.
