The present Restricted Diamond Area is also called the Sperrgebiet National Park (proclaimed in 2008) and stretches from the southern border of the Namib Naukluft Park to the Orange River, the border of Namibia and South Africa. It covers an area of 26.000 km² and is crossed by the national road B4 from Keetmanshoop to Lüderitz. The road to Lüderitz is open for the public but for a visit of Kolmannskop a permit is required. This also applies for visits to Oranjemund in the far south.
Built metres from the beautiful beach in Henties Bay, Namibia, with spectacular ocean views, Desert Rose will certainly appeal to the outdoor loving, adventure seeking family. Spend the day relaxing on the beach - the numerous dunes around Henties Bay are definitely worth sliding down as is the super tube during peak season. Alternatively, take a scenic drive to the adjacent Omaruru River Valley which provides a unique golf course for enthusiasts. A 70km drive from the resort brings you to Swako
The Swakopmund Jetty, known as Jetty 1905, was first completed in April 1905 originally intended for cargo to be offloaded from ships. In early 2000's, the jetty was recognized as a tourist attraction and a historical landmark and so in 2005 the Jetty underwent a major renovation featuring the high quality traditional style Boulevard Fitting.
