“Bogenfels” is the famous,
approximately 60 meter high Rock Arch that juts into the Atlantic Ocean south of Lüderitz.
Coastways Safari is the only tour operator in Namibia conducting tours in the
Costways' day tour leads us into the “Sperrgebiet” (forbidden diamond area), where mining activities are still taking place, through breathtaking desert landscapes with an incredible variety of desert plants. The tour includes a visit to the old “ghost” mining town of Pomona where some of the mining equipment dating back to 1910 to 1930 is still reasonably well preserved. The visit to Pomona feels like a journey into the past - when the Germans discovered the first diamond, their harsh living and difficult working conditions.
A cold Lunch is served in one of the old, but well preserved buildings in
Pomona. After lunch the final destination is the “Bogenfels” – allow yourself to
get carried away by one of the most spectacular sights in this rugged area.
