Windhoek is Namibia's capital city, and its charm lies in the harmonious blend of African and European cultures and the friendliness of its people. Nestling in the valley created by the Auas Mountain to the south, the Eros Mountains to the east and the Khomas Hochland to the west, Windhoek is a city of striking contrasts, and is a melting pot of the many groups which make up Namibia.

The official language is English, but German is spoken widely in the country's main centres and commercial farming areas. Windhoek is Namibia's economic and cultural centre.

Windhoek is home to approximately 240,000 people, an extremely small capital by global standards; however, the number is growing rapidly at present due mostly to a lack of employment in rural areas. Despite the large increase in population over the last few years, the city centre is extremely clean and trouble free. Most tourists comment on the cleanliness of the city, and often pronounce Windhoek to be a most un-African city.

Travelers typically arrive in this friendly, relaxed city at the International Airport and overnight in one of the city's fine hotels before leaving on early morning charter flights to the Namib Desert or elsewhere in Namibia. Note that most of these charters leave from the city's second airport at Eros.

Windhoek is a pleasantly small city, but doesn't offer a great deal for the sophisticated city lover. However, there are some interesting markets selling African drums and woodcarvings from the north, while elegant shops offer quality leather goods and quality gemstones. Windhoek is a cosmopolitan city with excellent hotels, restaurants, shops, banks and hospital facilities. Windhoek is an ideal centre from which to explore the surrounding countryside. The city is also the starting point for tours by car or aircraft to every part of the country.
