You can visit Lüderitz. It is easily seen, that Lüderitz has a German origin. The streets are full of beautiful old houses from around 1900. It is nice to walk around in the city. The church, on the highest hill, has beautiful windows. A visit to the desolated mining town of Kolmanskop, just outside Lüderitz, is a must-do. You can join a guided tour, which will give you a good impression of how life used to be in this small town, which is currently a real ghost town. Richtersveld

7 Sossusvlei Absolutely one of the highlights of your holiday is a visit to the Sossusvlei with huge red sand dunes. The sunrise and sunset are magical. Do not forget to bring a visit to Deadvlei. On the white clay pan there are acacia trees that seem petrified, though this is not the case, they are scorched by the sun. Because the area is very dry, the trees do not decompose. Sossusvlei
