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.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll through Deadvlei, pause for some serene contemplation at St Mary's Catholic Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Katutura Township, and admire the striking features of Christuskirche.
