Windhoek Holidays

Namibia’s capitol is also the country’s largest and busiest city, yet retains a delightful vibe you’d expect to find only in a smaller town.

Windhoek's downtown is an easy place to get around and, unlike a lot of African cities, is quite attractive. For the most part, it feels pretty safe, too. There's a ton of restaurants - from fast food to fine dining. There lots of tour operators who can hook you up with some awesome tours to the parks and attractions in other parts of the country. There are a few different malls with great shops to stock up on supplies, and a Cymot - Greensport which carries awesome camping and 4x4 gear.

Windhoek is a smaller city, but the perfect hub for doing some awesome backwoods exploring of the African wilderness. You can hop from Swakopmund on the coast, Etosha game park and the Okavanga Delta in the North, and Luderitz and Sossusvlei in the south all from this charming city (er, glorified town).

Namibia is a very stable and safe country to travel in. It's unique history, including separating officially from South Africa in the 1990's, means an opportunity to witness a country still establishing itself and creating an independent identity. It is heavily influenced from past Afrikaner and Dutch colonists, so its not unusual to find white Africans here. It also has a large Christian population.

The Owambo people make up the largest ethnic group in Namibia, but each of the 11 tribes each have a rich cultural identity. It really is something you have to see for yourself!

Enjoy Namibia, I miss it!

I never fully wrapped my head around this place. Super high unemployment, but a clean modern city, the often seems deserted.

Amo Namibia! Muita natureza, muita comida boa, muito intensa. Não gostei do sistema de transporte (carona paga) que dá um pouquinho de medo mas depois se acostuma.
