Luderitz is a small town in southern Namibia. It is an isolated town, positioned on a wild and windy shore and is surrounded by the Namib Desert. There is only one road in, yet this harbour town has a unique and very interesting charm.
Luderitz began life as a trading post, fishing and guano-harvesting town, but when diamonds were discovered in 1909 in nearby Kolmanskop, the town enjoyed a sudden surge of prosperity. Now the diamonds are mostly found elsewhere, and consequently the town has reverted back to its former self. Its appeal as a town lies in the fact that little has changed since the early 20th century. The way in which the colonial buildings cling to the rocks overlooking the bay, coupled with the brightly coloured German art deco style architecture, conflict with the extremely rocky Atlantic coastline of southern Namibia. This is what makes the town so curiously strange.
