With wind-swept desert dunes, abounding wildlife, dramatic coastlines, and a diverse blend of cultures, Namibia is a fascinating and alluring country to explore. Lüderitz lies tucked away on the fringe of the Namib Desert along the Diamond Coast and is beautifully framed by the forceful Atlantic Ocean. The working port town has an incredible laid-back atmosphere, almost sleepy, with a surreal appearance lending it a special charm. Grand old mansions perch on hilltops, a nostalgic tribute to the affluence of the diamond mining era. Many of the town's colourful buildings, lovingly maintained, replicate old Bavaria and are constructed in the Wilhelmian Art Deco architectural style.

A variety of hotels and quaint guest houses offer homely accommodation to suit the needs of all visitors.

They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
