Lüderitz

'''Lüderitz''' is a harbour town City of Windhoek Cooperations and Partnerships in southwest Namibia, lying on one of the least hospitable coasts in Africa. It is a port developed around Robert Harbour and Shark Island (Shark Island, Namibia).

The town is known for its colonial architecture, including some Art Nouveau work, and for wildlife including seal (seal (mammal))s, penguins, flamingos and ostriches. It is also home to a museum, and lies at the end of a decommissioned railway line to Keetmanshoop.

In 2013, it was reported that Lüderitz was renamed into ''ǃNamiǂNûs''. This pertains only to the constituency (ǃNamiǂNûs Constituency), though. "Lüderitz renaming misunderstood – Shangala." ''Namibian Sun.''
