If you are heading into Namibia and are concerned about getting around – don’t worry, Thrifty has you covered when it comes to car hire. Windhoek is a popular destination for both business and leisure trips.
Windhoek is the capital city of Namibia, and also the largest city in the country. It has close ties with South Africa, which is why many locals speak Afrikaans, and like many Southern African countries, it offers visitors the chance to take in some beautiful scenery.
Namibia only became independent from South African administration in 1990, meaning that there is some fascinating history for you to hear about during your stay.
Here are some of the activities and attractions available:
National Museum of Namibia:
Split into two sections, namely the Owela Museum and the Alte Fest Museum. Owela Museum focuses on the natural and cultural history, while Alte Feste is focused on the colonial history.
See the hard to reach corners of Windhoek by horseback. There are a number of beautiful tours for you to choose from, which also allows you to get some inside info on Windhoek attractions from local guides. Be sure to pack your camera, as you will have the opportunity to take some memorable snaps.
See this magnificent Lutheran church, which was opened over 100 years ago. Situated in the city centre, near the lush Parliament Gardens and Tentenpalast. Christuskirche was built in a gothic revival style and is a must see for visitors to the area.
