Windhoek is the capital and also biggest city in Namibia, though it still feels small-scale and spacious. For this reason you won’t get lost very soon in Windhoek. The city is located in the middle of Namibia, in the hills at a height of 1650 meters. Closeby is the only international airport of Namibia, which makes RV rental in Windhoek an ideal option if you want to make a unique roadtrip through Namibia.
Modern city in the middle of Namibia
Windhoek is a modern city with many western influences mixed with local culture. Namibia was colonized twice, once by Germany and once by South Africa, and became independent in 1990. Because of this history you still find lots of German buildings and next to English people also still speak Afrikaans and German.
Windhoek as starting point of your roadtrip
From Windhoek you can start your journey through Namibia. You can start in the northern part of Namibia, where you can visit the town Otjiwarongo and be amazed by the wildlife in Etosha National Park. This nature park has an enormous saltpan of 4800 km2, which can even be seen from space. The wildlife is very diverse. You can spot lions, elephants and even rhinos. After this safari you can drive towards the coast and via sea city Swakopmund, which is Namibia’s touristic hotspot, to the Namib Desert.
