Kolmanskop Wedding Photographer

Elopement Wedding in Kolmanskop

Hello friend, chances are you were searching for a wedding photographer in Kolmanskop and found us here. For us, each couple is a friend and not a client.

Kolmanskop (Afrikaans for Coleman's head, German: Kolmannskuppe) is a ghost town in the Namib in southern Namibia, 10 kilometres inland from the port town of Lüderitz. It was named after a transport driver named Johnny Coleman who, during a sand storm, abandoned his ox wagon on a small incline opposite the settlement. Once a small but very rich mining village, it is now a tourist destination run by the joint firm Namibia-De Beers. This is one of our favourite destinations for photography and history. Guided walking tours are available through the small town, telling you all the history with a very interesting walk through the museum. After a sand storm in 1908, where the first diamond was found by Zacharias, and it became evident that the area was very rich in diamonds. This is how the diamond rush started. The town was built in German style, which included an ice factory, school, hospital, ballroom, casino, bowling alley and the first tram in Africa. While the town was in full operation it was estimated that there were 700 families and 1200 residents. Eventually they realised that the mine was exhausted and they abandoned Kolmanskop in 1954 to join the search for the bigger diamonds further south.
