The accommodation: Great variety of places to stay and to fit one's pocket. From bed and breakfasts to hotel/motel. This also includes establishments such as self-catering units, camping places as well as lodges, farms that caters for accomodation needs. The prices also are such as that you stay where it firs your pocket or the environment you choose to abode at.

Surroundings and tours:  Part of a country that prides itself on its wide open spaces yet everything is "gettoed" in. Nowhere to simply go to enjoy the natural surroundings of Windhoek (except avis dam which is so overused and becoming degraded). No decent hiking trails of any length except overpriced ones on private land, no attempt to make availble this natural beauty by the City of Windhoek on even their townlands/city lands which seem rather to be leased out to farmers on exclusive use contracts who exclude all others from extensive areas of townlands . This is a real shame and a lack and a reflection of a developemnt ... More attitude from the 1950s. Most capitals have open free recreation land even in the USA. Its of a con the way Namibia and windhoek markets itself.

Useful tips: Create more entertainment options, educational and entertaining to keep the youth out of the street thus low crime rate. Also programs such as entrepreneurial programs will boost the realization to the need for self sufficiency which eventually turn to better living standards, higher life expectancy.

General opinion: Not a bad place. Need a greater variety of entertainment spots, needs to work on public transport. rather safe for tourists, too much development. City is very clean in comparison to the rest of Africa ... can be a bit on the costly side

General opinion: Windhoek is a small town, beautiful but scary . Windhoek has a beautiful Science and technology school, Polytechnic of Namibia which is now known as National University of Science and Technology. People are busy during the day at about 5.45 all activities stop, you might even walk in the street alone, with just a few cars.

Useful tips: If you are walking, always be on the look out for harmful and unwanted company. Its best not to speak to strangers unless you realy feel safe and do not carry your valuables around or else keep them out of sight.

Not to miss: There are several examples of German wonderful colonial architecture in the city as the Tintenpalast (Ink Palace), which houses Namibia's parliament, or the Christuskirche (Christ Church) of the Lutheran parish from the year 1896.
The Alte Feste (old fort) which now houses the National Museum and Schwerinsburb and Sanderburg, the two Windhoek castles built between 1913 and 1918.
For those who love nature, the Etosha National Park, one of the most famous parks in the world, is, with no doubt, worth a visit.

General opinion:  Windhoek, Namibia’s capital, lies at an altitude of 1650 metres in a pretty valley bordered by the Eros Mountains in the north and the Auas mountains in the south.
It is situated in almost the exact centre of Namibia.
Windhoek is the country's largest city and its administrative, communication, and economic centre. It is also one of the world's major trade centres for Karakul sheep skins.
At the end oh 19th century, Windhoek was the capital of the German colony of South West Africa. And the influence of the German language and culture is, ... More after all this years, still alive: there are many German restaurants with traditional German dishes, beer, and even a German carnival. Moreover, Windhoek combines the modern city architectural style with that of the German colonial era.
Windhoek has an international airport 45 kilometres out of town.

General opinion: In my opinion WHK lack has a lack of safe wellcoming entertainment. Transport i would say is ok, if you consider local taxis only, there rest are overprised. There is a need to see the police around more, to get the sense of feeling safe. It is affordable.

General opinion: Whk is a beautiful city with its good natural structured landforms. The development of the city is growing too fast on a abnormal rate speed. City of whk need to reconstruct the city map to provide enough open spaces as landscaping design in case the city is growing and in the future to have a city of good impression and free impression relating the nature structure of the city with new/modern construction.

General opinion: Safety measures must be put in place, because one does not feel safe at at the the Capital city. More Police officers must be employed. The employment rate in the city is also very high. Self-help projects must be initiated especially for the youth. The tourism industry is grow, you can see tourism especially at city centre which is a good thing.
