About Windhoek

Located almost exactly at the centre of Namibia, Windhoek, its capital, is a small but exciting city with strong modern African and colonial European influences. This curious blend of cultures makes the city seem almost out of place when compared with other parts of Africa, which are more true to their traditional roots. Nevertheless, Windhoek is both thriving and progressive and is dotted with lush green areas where many locals spend their afternoons or lunch breaks. Also, unlike many other capital cities around the world, Windhoek is big enough to keep visitors more than satisfied but also small enough to be easily walkable.
