Joe's Beerhouse

by kentgj25

Im going to be in Windhoek for one night before I embark on a volunteer placement and it sounds like Joe's Beerhouse is the place to go in the evening. I'm a girl travelling alone so wanted to know if its the sort of place I can go on my own? Or will I stick out like a sore thumb??

You might want to have a look at the following link, which discusses safety in Windhoek (in general):

Off the bat, my advice would be NOT to walk around at night (to or from the Beerhouse). I would also be careful of using taxis too late at night. Keep this in mind if you were thinking of having a late night!

Hope the above addresses some of your question.

There are several great places to go and eat. Joe's is actually a compound and a great place for a lone traveeler. The staff will look after you. As mentioned before, take a taxi. Windhoek is not that big.

A review of Joes and a few others is here. The O'Portugalia restaurant is just around the corner. Unfortunately many budget acommodations are a good 15+ minute walk away.

We just recently got back from a holiday to Namibia. Joe's Beerhouse is delicious! Like the other guy said - take a taxi. We used Corrie van Wyk at L&C Transfers & Chauffeurs: www.lc-transfers.com.na. They will pick you up after your meal as well - just ask the waitress to phone them for you. Actually - don't ask the waitress - ask one of the guys at the front door wearing a headset. Sometimes the waitress forgets to tell you the taxi has arrived :)

Safari in Okapuka : the lion feeding

by Bigjones

Another great moment : we went with our guide to give a piece of giraffe to the lions. Protected by a wall and an electric fence, we were able to see a lion and a lionness very close to us and of course, to hear them as well.

SEATBELTS AND HAND HELD TELEPHONES

by DAO


It is against the law in Namibia to drive while holding a telephone. It is also mandatory that all passengers wear belts and children be in appropriate seats. This is not just the law, it’s smart. In Windhoek and Swakopmund you risk a fine from the Police and it’s very easy to detect when your are violating either of these laws. Across the rest of Namibia violating either of these laws could easily get everyone seriously injured or dead. Wild animals love to run out in front of cars, especially at night. These are the big ones that can destroy cars and you. Don’t do it. Drive safe and smart and stay alive.

by PierreZA

The Botanical gardens in Windhoek is worth visiting for an hour or more.
The gardens have some beautiful plants, including aloes, quiver trees etc.
It is also possible to buy plants from the nursery at the gardens.
