Windhoek

Situated in Central Namibia, the cosmopolitan city of Windhoek serves as the capital of the country. It is home to an international airport and a plethora of restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and accommodation options. The city is clean, safe and well-organised, with a colonial legacy that is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and the widespread use of the German language. Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical architecture and modern buildings, many of which are worth a look, including the Alte Feste an old fort, the 1896 Christuskirche Christ Church, and the more contemporary Supreme Court.

Overnight: Klein Windhoek Guesthouse

Klein Windhoek Guesthouse is situated in one of Windhoek’s best suburbs in a quiet area next to the Klein Windhoek Riverbed – an ideal location for business people and tourists. From here it is a short 5 minute drive to City Centre; shops and popular restaurants are in close proximity. We offer a variety of rooms and self catering units. Transfers from and to the airport as well as to the city center will be arranged on request. If you are interested in a city tour or would like to visit a game ranch outside Windhoek, we can get you in touch with the organisers.

Waterberg Plateau National Park

Situated in north central Namibia and named for the springs that emanate from its foothills, the Waterberg Plateau National Park is a fascinating geological site featuring compressed sandstone crags, 200 million-year-old dinosaur footprints, and petrified sand dunes. The area’s natural water sources make it far more fertile than its environs, and the park is blessed with a plethora of plant and animal species, including leopards, rhinoceros, vultures, cheetahs, bush babies, ferns and fig trees. Visitors can enjoy a wide selection of activities including: learning about the local Herero culture on an informative village tour, tracking rhino on a guided safari, exploring the Waterberg's 50-kilometre-long and 16-kilometre-wide sandstone plateau, dubbed 'table mountain', and catching a glimpse of the rare and endangered sable and roan antelope.

Overnight: Waterberg Plateau Campsite

The Waterberg Plateau Campsite is situated on a hill in the valley of the Waterberg near the main reception of the private nature reserve Waterberg Wilderness. It has eight pitches on the soft, red sand of the Kalahari, separated by bushes and trees. At a roofed bar guests can order drinks, snacks and meat for barbecue and make use of the plugs for recharging cellphone and camera batteries. There is a swimming pool and a view point overlooking the Kalahari bush savannah. Free WLAN is available at the main reception (5 min walk). Each pitch has its own shower/toilet in the central ablution block, with hot and cold water. All pitches offer a shadow roof, a table and a bench, barbecue facilities and a water tap.

Camping guests are welcome to join the activities (guided Plateau Hike, Honeymoon Sundowner, Rhino Drive, game tracking, cultural tour into Hereroland, History Path, 5 nature trails) and have dinner at the restaurant of Waterberg Valley Lodge (5 min. walk).

Etosha West

Visitors to Etosha West can look forward to exploring the magnificent scenery of this remote north Namibian landscape characterised by lush undulating terrain and a reddish brown soil, which is a stark contrast to the white dusty clay soil of Etosha East’s flat expansive plains. The area boasts numerous waterholes attracting elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, and a variety of buck. Don’t miss the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the rare Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra and black-faced impala.
