Windhoek

Windhoek is Namibia’s capital, situated more or less in the middle of the country. It sits in a valley on a high plateau, sparing it the worst of the Summer heat. It is easily accessible by both road and air but has no public transport services, with only taxis available. Nevertheless, the city is well laid out and easy to navigate.
Windhoek itself has few tourist attractions but serves well as a springboard to destinations further afield. It has a large selection of accommodation options – from budget to luxury – and there are several good restaurants and a couple of museums and galleries worth visiting if staying for more than a night.

Okapuka Safari Lodge – Gondwana Collection Namibia

Just 30 km outside of Windhoek in the direction of the garden town of Okahandja, one can find Okapuka Safari Lodge. It is almost unbelievable that one feels as if you are in the middle of nowhere, just a short drive out of the capital. Vast landscapes with golden grasslands, green camelthorn trees and soaring mountains as far as the eye can see.
