Kolmanskop Ghost Town

Join our team on a Kolmanskop Ghost Town Safari adventure. This is one of the best-combined adventures on offer in Southern Namibia. This safari will explore two of the main attractions in Namibia, the ghost town of Kolmanskop and the Fish River Canyon. This is an arid region and along the way, we might be so lucky to stumble across the wild horses of the Namib!

What sets the Kolmanskop Ghost Town Safari Apart?

This is the ideal way to explore and discover these arid landscapes.  This safari will start and end at The Growcery Camp. You will need a valid passport to partake on this arid desert safari.

The combination of the Orange River, Fish River Canyon and Kolmanskop is perfect to explore the hidden south of Namibia.

We recommend that all travellers arrive no later than 5 pm on day 1 at The Growcery Camp. This evening we will discuss our adventure around the dinner table and alongside a relaxing fire.
