Re: looking for good (half)day guided tours in windhoek

by sarahreynold

You can do half day tour, does most of the city sights plus arts and crafts center. But perhaps more interesting would be the half day tour to the townships and you get to meet local people, that's a fully guided tour, you could try www.asiaoz.com/africa.html and then go to Sightseeing in Africa, then put Windhoek in the search and they should have it.

Travel Tips for Windhoek

Money Matters

by Edla

Doing research on a country I want to visit in Asia, i just realised that it's nice to know what bank cards and money can be used in a country. So I thought to make this quick tip for Namibia:
You can use any visa electron bank card here in Namibia. We have ATM's especially the FNB branded ones that take all visa bank cards.
The local currency is exactly equal to the South Africanm Rand (ZAR) in value so when you're checking exchange rates, you can just look up the rand. In fact, you can just use the Rand here too, as it's a legal tender in the country.
The usual average is 1 USD = 7 NAD and 1 GBP = 14 NAD oh and 1 EUR = 10 NAD give or take.
Exchanging any of those currencies here is very easy especially in Windhoek and Swakopmund.

The climate

by georeiser

Days are mostly hot days during November, December, January and February, while nights are cooler. The maximum temperature in January is 31°C.

June, July and August are cold with little rain. Minimum temperature at 5°C in the day and 0°C in the nights. It almost never snows.

Windhoek is a semi-desert region. When I was there in July, the air was so dry that I had problems with my lips and skin.

You can buy what you might forgotten.

by Gili_S

For Windhoek you do not need any special weather gear, just remember that in the winter months it can get very cold at night. The good side is that it is in the city and if you forgotten or missed something, you can still buy it here before you go on your desert road. Windhoek is not a malaria risk area and no such tablets needed here.

Air Namibia

by georeiser

Air Namibia is the national airline. It's a little airline with only one inter-continental route to Frankfurt, Germany (Airbus 340-300). The rest are routes to the bordering countries Angola, South-Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Zoo park in Windhoek

by georeiser

The main park in the centre of Windhoek is called the "Zoo Park". But it's just a park, and not a zoo. A lot of young people are hanging around here. You will find the park in the middle of Independence Ave, Fidel castro street, Park street and Luderitz street.
