Now that you’ve experienced the sea and the desert, it’s time for lunch. Lüderitz doesn’t have many restaurants, but Ritzi’s ( Waterfront Block D, Hafen Street) has a view of the harbour and jetty and a good seafood menu. Order the seafood platter for two (R400) or drink a Tafel Lager and enjoy the harbour atmosphere. Open Monday from noon to 11 pm and Tuesday to Saturday from 8 am to 11 pm ( 00 264 63 202 818).
Time for a self-drive tour of the Lüderitz peninsula along the 65 km circular route. Get a map from Lüderitz Safaris & Tours. Take a jacket – a cold wind sometimes
