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.
On the 16th (Mon), stop by Wecke & Voigts, tour the pleasant surroundings at Avis Dam Nature Reserve, then make a trip to Gibeon Meteorites, and finally play a few rounds at Omeya Golf and Residential Oasis.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Windhoek journey planner.

Amsterdam, Holland to Windhoek is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Windhoek due to the time zone difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Amsterdam in March, with highs in Windhoek at 34°C and lows at 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Mon) early enough to drive to Waterberg Plateau Park.
