Windhoek, Namibia — 11 nights

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.

There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Christuskirche, explore the galleries of National Museum of Namibia, take an in-depth tour of Cuno Hoffmeister Memorial Observatory, and stroll through NamibRand Nature Reserve.
