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.
Windhoek is known for historic sites, museums, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the spiritual surroundings of Christuskirche, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, examine the collection at Trans-Namib Railroad Museum, and tee off at Omeya Golf and Residential Oasis.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read our Windhoek tour itinerary planning website.

George, South Africa to Windhoek is an approximately 8- hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from George to Windhoek.
