Luderitz, Namibia is a port town on the coast in Africa. It was founded in 1883. Luderitz began its life as a trading post, with other activities in fishing and guano-harvesting. In 1909, after the discovery of diamonds nearby, Luderitz enjoyed a sudden surge of success. Today diamonds are mostly found elsewhere and offshore, and Luderitz has lost a lot of this interest. The harbor has a very shallow rock bottom, making it unusable for modern ships; this led to Walvis Bay becoming the center of the Namibian shipping industry. Recently the addition of a new wharf has allowed larger fishing vessels to dock at Luderitz. The town has also re-styled itself in an attempt to draw in tourists to the area, which includes a new waterfront area for shops and offices.
