With more than a smattering of European influences from the homely Konditoreis on every corner to the striking (and rather surprising) Germanic castles that punctuate the skyline, Windhoek is Namibia’s well-groomed capital city. At almost the exact geographical centre of the vast country, the leafy streets are an ideal stopover after a long journey; spend an afternoon shopping for curios in the airy Post Street Mall or wander through Zoo Park and enjoy your strudel in the shade of the trees. This is relaxed city-life at its best and a couple of days here are pleasant, stress-free and always fun. Get involved in the planning of your own Windhoek safari online.
