Bogenfels is a location in the coastal Namib Desert of Namibia, noted for its natural rock formations (hence the name, which means "arch rock" in German). The main formation is a 55 metre high rock arch close to the coast. It is not easily accessible, due to the terrain and its location within a restricted diamond-mining area, but there are official guided tours.
