The Ideal Beginning for your Luxury Namibia Safari

Windhoek is Namibia's capital and largest city. It is situated in the geographic centre of the country at an elevation of 1,600m. This is the city where most safaris through Namibia begin, and the first point of entry in Namibia should you arrive by airplane to Hosea Kutako International Airport. Windhoek is the social, economic, political, and cultural centre of the country. Nearly every Namibian national enterprise, government body, educational and cultural institution is headquartered here. For those safari travellers that are staying here longer, the city features a wide variety of retail, cultural and historical amenities, as well as fine lodging and dining establishments.

Hosea Kutako International Airport

Namibia’s Capital City and Main Safari Entry Point

Windhoek is the capital city of Namibia, and all international safari guests will arrive in the country via the Hosea Kutako International Airport. Due to its hilly surroundings, the airport is situated about forty kilometers outside town. Windhoek is a bustling metropolis that is unexpectedly neat and orderly, though this is perhaps less surprising when one considers it was a German territory for many years. Situated in a pretty valley in the central highlands, Windhoek boasts many buildings built in the German architectural style. It serves as the head of the country’s enterprise, administration, education and cultural bodies.

Visit Joe’s Beerhouse, Windhoek’s Legendary Beer and Dining Venue

Namibian beer is said to be the best in Africa and is brewed in Windhoek. Come and taste this special beer and other local favorites at Joe’s Beerhouse, established in 1991, by German founder Joachim Gross. This legendary pub and dining venue offer a unique combination of delicious and authentic food, heartfelt hospitality, and a one-of-its-kind atmosphere. As an extra add-on service an in-house shuttle service is also available to those without transport at a minimal fee.

Namibia’s Hub for Shopping, Township Tours and Cultural Excursions

Windhoek is Namibia’s main hub for shopping, township tours and cultural excursions. Windhoek has a good mix of craft stores and modern one-stop shopping centers. If shopping does not appeal to you, why not enjoy a guided city or township tour, where you will track the city’s history through its historical buildings and monuments, including the Heroes Acre war memorial, and also visit the lively township of Katutura and learn more about its fascinating background.
