Looking for a Windhoek City Guide? We have just the thing! The Namibia Business Innovation Center (NBIC) has produced a Windhoek City Guide to help you navigate this dynamic capital.
Exploring Windhoek is great fun, it is a safe city and everyone can feel comfortable exploring it on foot.
But don’t be surprised if you get out of breath, Windhoek sits in the Khomas Highlands at 1,700 meters above sea level (a great place to train for a marathon!).
400 000 people live in Windhoek, which makes it Namibia’s largest city. It’s a city of numerous boroughs and sharp contrasts, from the lush gardens and quiet streets of Klein Windhoek, to the bustling Katatura township and the entrepreneurial spirit that seems to pervade Windhoek West, the city has many faces.
The guide is especially helpful in suggesting you how to get around and to see the city economically (check out their special section in Windhoek for $100; that’s $100 Namibian dollars…).
Where to get it
City Guides are only N$20, and available at NBIC, Stellenbosch Wine Bar, Pure & Simple and Mao. Or you can access the online version here: http://nbic.polytechnic.edu.na/windhoek-city-guide/
