The abandoned settlement was once an up-and-coming town in the diamond business. Today, the ghost town offers a great backdrop of sand-filled buildings. Here in the hospital wing it is already eerie when the wind stirs up the sand.

Photography Tips

Ask for separate photographer times! So you escape the tourism tours and have the buildings for yourself. Take enough time and have a wide angle with you. Symmetry like here on the example can conjure up great perspectives.
