Windhoek Mini Guide

Windhoek is the capital and largest city in the Republic of Namibia. Windhoek bears much evidence of its colonial days even though it is now a thriving commercial and political city. If you are hiring a car then a drive around the city centre will reward you with views of the old buildings built by the Germans, the Dutch and the British.

To get to Windhoek the best way is to arrive at Hosea Kutako International Airport and collect a rental car. The airport is twenty-five miles out of town. This is a good option as it will allow you to see the city at your own speed and head out into the countryside to see the wildlife without the expense of a guided trip. Another alternative is to take the scenic route with a rental car from Cape Town.
