Flights To Windhoek

The City of Windhoek is also traditionally known as Khoekhoe (hot springs) and Otjiherero (place of steam) with much conjecture over the years as to where the name Windhoek came from. It was first mentioned in a letter dated 12 August 1844 from Jonker Afrikaner to Joseph Tindall with one theory suggesting that Jonker named the town after the ‘Winterhoek Mountains’ at Tulbach in South Africa where his ancestors lived.

Built in 1914, the castle’s refined elegance, charm and luxury has successfully been preserved by the hotel that offers 16 spacious en-suite rooms, all with splendid vistas of the city and surrounding Khomas Hochland mountains.

In the township of Katutura, the Xwama Cultural Village and Traditional Restaurant provides delicious meals with African and Namibian flavours while at Joe’s Beerhouse you can indulge in wholesome Namibian and German food and for Portuguese food, Kubata serves outstanding dishes.

Windhoek is the largest city and capital to Namibia and still one of the safest countries in the world, but it’s still best to keep your doors locked and be alert to scams. Not an alluring city, it does have historical aspects of interest such as the gothic style Lutheran church Christuskirche that opened in 1910. The Alte Feste, an Old Fortress built in 1890 that houses the National Museum including the Reiterdenkmal statue, commemorating Germany’s victory during the 1904 to 1907 war. Next to Alte Feste is Windhoek’s Public Library’built in 1925.

Tourists can view and purchase art work by local artists from numerous galleries that hold events and exhibitions throughout the year and not to be missed is the National Art Gallery of Namibia, the Atelier Kendzia, the House of Art or the Omba Gallery.

Visitors and locals frequent pubs, nightclubs and restaurants including live plays and musical concerts at the ‘Warehouse’ or the National Theatre of Namibia that is also host to productions from Europe and Africa.

Getting Around

The majority of visitors get around with taxis, motor cycles or vehicles with many locals riding bicycles. Windhoek’s railway station only provides connections to Okahandja (north), Rehoboth (south) and Gobabis (east) with travel being slow as the train stops at all posts and has both freight and passengers coaches.

Getting to and from the Airports

Visitors wanting to hire a vehicle when landing at Windhoek’s Hosea Kutako International Airport (45km east of Windhoek) have choices of rental companies including Avis, Thrifty, Budget or Hertz, alternatively Shuttle Namibia can be booked for an airport transfer.

Eros Airport five kilometres from Windhoek, is the busier of the two airports – in terms of aircraft movement – and the hub for leisure travel servicing mostly light aircraft. Car rentals companies based at Eros include Europcar, Bidvest and Avis.
