Even though this is a small town, it is one of the largest population centers in Namibia. It is a popular overland stop between the Fish River Canyon and the Namib-Naukluft National Park. There isn't a whole lot to do here except eat some fish and do a little local break dancing.
There are some interesting things to do outside of town like the diamond mine at Kolmanskop. The sand sinds and occasional kokerboom tree is intersting as well.
