Namibia's capital, Windhoek, is a smallish city - although the largest in the country - and is the starting point of most safaris.

A city of contrasts, there are low-rise office blocks shoulder to shoulder with cafes, bars and restaurants, and the whole city is a blend of modern Europe and modern Africa, but with a few attractive old buildings of German architecture. It is not a fast-paced place, and there are some pleasant places to chill out and have a coffee and a nice meal.
