Visiting Windhoek in Namibia

Windhoek is the vibrant capital city of Namibia. It lies in the centre of the country and is home to Namibia's main international airport, making it the ideal base to begin or end most camping and lodge safaris to Namibia. The attractive city is nestled within a wide valley between rolling bush-covered hills. It's worth exploring Windhoek whilst on a Namibia safari. Take time to stroll through the city centre, enjoy coffee at one of the pavement cafes and absorb the mix of modern and colonial architecture. It's a relatively small city with a great fusion of African and European influences. The contemporary shops blend with street stalls and growth is obvious.

At the start of your Namibia safari Windhoek is a great place to relax in comfortable accommodation after your flight and sample its excellent restaurants. Most of the Namibia camping and lodge safaris don't include meals in Windhoek so that you can choose where you would like to dine. On conclusion of your safari to Namibia there's usually time for last-minute shopping to pick up mementos and gifts for people back home. Shops sell a range of leather goods, gems and African curios. Off Windhoek's main Independence Avenue is a pedestrian boulevard called Post Street Mall, with open-air craft stalls and shopping complexes. The craft market on Tal Street is also worth a visit.
