"Sperrgebiet tour review"
Pamona was the main spot and we were left to explore and photograph on our own while Heinz set up lunch. This was enormous (could have fed two families) and came with the extra bonus of a bottle of sparkling wine! Unexpected luxury in the middle of a desert ghost town! Nice home-made pastries too.
Then we drove on to Bogenfels – a coastal rock arch that exceeded all expectations. It really is a truly impressive sight to behold. It was an expensive tour – for just us two clients, when the nominal minimum number of participants is four – but we found it was money well invested." Read more about this whole safari
The 6 of us on the trip had a wonderful time, and the journey through the Sperrgebeit and its ghost towns was breathtaking.
An excellent lunch was provided in the quirky surrounds of the old schoolhouse at Pomona ghost town.

We were able to stop 'on demand' which was very often as the abandoned workings and settlements were ridiculously photogenic. The Bongenfels Arch was worth seeing and the setting of the desert against the blue Atlantic was beautiful." Read more about this whole safari

"Stunning and emotional"
Then onto Bogenfels (on one rough road) which was stunning, the strong offshore winds created fantastic waves which crashed into the rugged coastline and the arch is a must see for any keen photographer or lover of nature.
