360 Panorama of Diamond Mine Ghost Town

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I took a 360 panorama at Kolmannskuppe – the diamond mine ghost town located just a few miles into the desert east of Luderitz, Namibia. The photo was taken at the top of the hill above the town and a short distance from the now-rusted water tank they located on the hill. A bit further behind the tank is the swimming pool they had which was once filled with salt water pumped from the sea several miles away. The town had all the conveniences courtesy of the diamond mining company, but was closed down when a better location was found. Decades later, they realized the ghost town made a good tourist destination. Here is the 360 view of the desert and the town:
