The climate of Namibia can be harsh and journeys around this beautiful country can be challenging. Windhoek is an oasis of peaceful modernity and convenience. It is a great place to recharge the batteries before setting off for more natural adventures. It has plenty of shopping, restaurants, hotels, parks, historical museums and places of interest.
