Windhoek

Windhoek ©
Located in the heart of the country, Namibia's capital city Windhoek receives a constant influx of tourists, in part because of its international airport.
Windhoek is known for historic sites, museums, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: tour the pleasant surroundings at Deadvlei, hunt for treasures at Namibia Craft Centre, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, and see the interesting displays at Geological Survey Museum.

Make your Windhoek itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Windhoek is an approximately 15-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Windhoek due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Amsterdam in May, you will find days in Windhoek are somewhat warmer (30°C), and nights are about the same (13°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) to allow time to travel to Luderitz.
