Avis Dam Nature Reserve reviews
If you make sure to go when it's busy, around sunset it feels safe. Looks great after the recent rain
Avis Dam is a great place to do a walk near Windhoek. For birds it's really great, including the potential to see a number of Namibia's specials, such as rockrunner.
