Tiras Mountains – Farm Tiras
After breakfast you will visit the ghost town of Kolmanskop ten kilometres east ofLüderitz. In 1908 a railway worker found a sparkling stone in the sand at Kolmanskop. In the events which followed, Lüderitz became a place where soldiers of fortune became immensely rich, only to gamble away their wealth in the shortest possible time. In 1930, diamond mining in Kolmanskop was halted, and slowly, the town was left to itself and reconquered by the dunes. Hear and see more on the history of Kolmanskop on a guided tour through the partially renovated remains of the ghost town.
Via Aus you will proceed to Farm Tiras, which is one of the farms that belong to the Tiras Mountains Conservancy. The Koch family will await you with coffee/tea and cake whereafter the unique flora/fauna and the different forms of landscapes will be shown and explained to you. A breath-taking sundowner at the edges of the Namib Desert will roundoff the day.
