Windhoek, the capital
Capital of Namibia since the country’s independence in 1990, Windhoek is now changing. If the central artery (Independence Avenue) is always lined with houses that make you irresistibly think about Germany and its colorful buildings, witnesses of a presence of several decades, the sites are increasing. We feel that the city wants to fully enter the twenty-first century and to develop a contemporary architecture in line with its rank of capital. However, as soon as we come out of some central streets, nature quickly reasserts itself and baboons do not hesitate to bicker on roadsides that take you to the South and the Kalahari Desert.
Where to sleep ? Hilton Windhoek. Located in the center, a few hundred meters from the Supreme Court and from the presidential palace, this modern and comfortable hotel to rest after a long flight while enjoying the pool on the roof-top overlooking downtown.
