Windhoek is not a place that people generally spend more than night or two in.
It is a smallish city, though the largest in Namibia, and like most, it is 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, but for wildlife enthusiasts it is just a stopover.
