Kolmanskop : Travel Information and Accommodation
Visits to the Ghost Towns
Kolmanskop can only be visited on a prebooked guided tour. Every day, there are one-hour guided tours, in the mornings at 9h30 and 11h00, Sundays at 10:00. Tickets cost about N$60 per person and are available at Luederitz Tours & Safaris in Bismarck Street, Tel 063-202719.
The operators also arranges tours to Elizabeth Bay and to the ghost towns Pomona and Bogenfels.
Because all these places are located within a stricted protected diamond area, one has to produce a passport. For Elizabeth Bay with its active diamond mine one has to register for a visit at least 5 days in advance. A clean criminal record, however, is not required any longer.
No accommodation available in Kolmanskop, but only in nearby Luederitz.
