Central excursion

Central Namibia

The blue color on the map mark the centre of the country, stretching from the capital of Windhoek up to the Etosha National Park and in the west to the Atlantic. The central region boasts a great number of highlights, including Windhoek and the seaside town of Swakopmund. For many visitors, however, the magnificent Etosha Game Reserve is the top destination.

 

CENTRAL & WESTERN NORTH

The Central Plateau

The Central Plateau is dominated by Namibia’s capital, Windhoek. A number of speciality guest farms are found in the area some of which offer viewing of Namibia’s predators such as the cheetah, leopard and lion. The Waterberg Park was established as a sanctuary for the rare and endangered game species of the Caprivi. In other areas dinosaur footprints can be seen as well as the largest known meteorite in the world, Hoba Meteorite. Otjikoto and Guinas lakes are unique museums with rare mouth-breeding species of fish

Windhoek and Surrounds

Namibia’s capital, Windhoek lies in a basin in the central highlands and is surrounded by mountains. It is a city often described as having a continental atmosphere which can be ascribed to its architecture, cuisine, dress codes and educational institutions yet also has the colour, sounds and tempo of a modern African city.

Pavement displays of African drums and woodcarvings from the north contrast with elegant shops offering sophisticated Swakara garments and Namibian gemstones set in individually designed pieces of jewellery. While some shops display clothing, silver and glassware imported from Europe, others stock casual and colourful cloths from West Africa.

Windhoek offers a wide variety of hotels, guesthouses, pensions and bed and breakfasts from which to choose, according to one’s needs. There are also several guestfarms and safari lodges in the area surrounding the city.
