Windhoek, Namibia — 16 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.
Step out of Windhoek with an excursion to Gross Barmen Hot Springs in Gross Barmen--about 1h 15 min away. Spend the 4th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at NamibRand Nature Reserve, get a taste of life in the country at Okapuka Ranch, take in nature's colorful creations at Parliament Gardens, and hunt for treasures at Namibia Craft Centre.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Windhoek online visit planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Windhoek is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. While traveling from Amsterdam, expect a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Windhoek, ranging from highs of 34°C to lows of 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to fly to Gaborone.
