Windhoek

Located in the heart of the country, Namibia's capital city Windhoek receives a constant influx of tourists, in part because of its international airport.
Take a break from the city and head to Spreetshoogte Pass and Daan Viljoen Nature Reserve. Step off the beaten path and head to Trans-Namib Railroad Museum and Wecke & Voigts. There's lots more to do: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, contemplate the long history of Katutura Township, tour the pleasant surroundings at Zoo Park, and examine the collection at Owela Museum.
