One day in Windhoek..

by Soili

Hello!
I will have one day to spend in windhoek. I'm not sure if I can goa and disappear from my travelling companion (or with him) because there'll be some people waiting for us.
What is the best place of Windhoek to see, in your opinion at daytime? What about the night time - any REALLY spectacular places?
It'll be all very spectacular, don't get me wrong, but just something-- really, really the best you love in Windhoek...
Regards

by cosmopolit

would not say anything is so spectacular to be mentioned as Windhoek is rather smallish as most places in Namibia. What I found quite funny is going up to the church on the hill and overlook the area. Look down the road you just came up and follow it out into nowhere in the desert. It works on all sides in Windhoek. I usually use it as gateway and stay at the Country Club outside town.

Thanks for the answer. I know it's a small place...

Travel Tips for Windhoek

Safari in Okapuka : the giraffes

by Bigjones

This is the first giraffe we saw in Namibia. Apart from giraffes, these are some of the animals we saw in Okapuka :

- wildebeests
- hartebeests
- springboks
- gemsboks (= oryx)
- white rhinos (endangered)
- vultures
- wood sandpipers

Choice of street names

by Assenczo

A walk along Windhoek streets would reveal a curious combination of local heroism, political correctness and historical reminiscences. As most intriguing example street Robert Mugabe should be mentioned. This strongman of the ex Southern Rhodesia (named after another strongman) used to be a good dictator to whom the jewel of Africa was eventually handed over to take care of. And yes indeed he did for approximately 25 years until one morning or afternoon something irrevocable happened and he turned into a monster. Well the Windhoek reality does not reflect this reality and continues to have Mugabe embellishing the pavement of a street in the heart of the historical part of the city. Another controversial fella has quite the following here. Fidel Castro is the patron of one of the major streets leading all the way up to old German icon such as Christkirhe. As a cherry on top of the icing his brother Raul happened to drive along in a high powered Mercedes there underlining the permanent celebrity status of the family in this distant land.

How bout Goat head at Otjikaendu Den ;)

by Edla

This is a little "restaurant" in the heart of Katutura. Katutura is a black neighborhood and quite "rural".
This quaint hangout is popular with the locals and the tourist who've been "dragged" there enjoyed it. It's a sort of shebeen/restaurant combo that has been made popular by the owner's goat head recipe. People in Namibia eat goat and they eat ALL of the goat :)

So at this restaurant you'll eat goat feet, goat head, tripe (the belly of the goat, known locally as omatangara).

German Chruch

by THLIN

It's really an amazing stuff to see a beautiful chruch in Africa. Just 10 minute walk from the town. Inside there is a nice grandpa who gives visitors a hand, even you need a photo-taking, he is willing to do so. What's more, you don't have to pay any entrance fee.

Tintenpalast (Parliament)

by euzkadi

This huge colonial building was built by Gottlieb Redecker and was used as the German colonial government headquarters. It has a beautiful garden in the front with statues of important Namibian citizens.
