Often called a piece of germany at the corner of the desert - this is actually a quite picturesque small town.

The colorful buildings are old fashioned but nicely renovated.

Have a walk through the town.
Have cake and coffee at Antons Café close to the lighthouse.
Visit the Aquarium at the beach.
Go shopping in Peters "antiques".

Make a round flight over the desert.

Do the Welwitchia drive through moonlike landscapes and find peculiar plants.

    Must be weird to find those German-looking buildings and Black Forest cake in Africa. I don't blame them for changing the street names, actually.
