African Travel Concept

Windhoek

Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, is located at the geographic centre of the country surrounded by rolling mountains. It is the main arrival and departure point for most Namibian visits, yet still well worth a visit in its own right.

The influence of German colonization is still present in language, beautiful architecture and restaurants where one can savour traditional dishes, delicious breads and some of the best beers in the world.

During the day, the city centre is a busy hub of bustling shops and market stalls. Due to Namibia’s complex and intertwined history, you will see people of all colours and cultures. From the fairest blond European individuals to striking African women in traditional dress - all seem to possess a wonderful sense of pride for their country.

Windhoek’s main attractions include Namibia’s National Museum at AlteFeste (Old Fort), the Christuskirche (Christ Church) and Katutura. This suburb built on South Africa’s apartheid policy in the 1950’s is now a crowded mix of people from different cultures living together in peace and harmony.

The city has a peaceful ambience created by hills, lots of trees and grass plains – giving it a small town feel although being the largest and most populated city in Namibia.
