Windhoek overview

When is the best time to fly to Windhoek?

Peak Season:

The most popular time to visit is during the dry winter season from May to October, as the weather is at its most pleasant and game spotting is at its best. During these months high temperatures range from 21 to 30 degrees Celsius and lows are around 7 to 15 degrees. This does however come at a cost, so cheap flights to Windhoek and discounted accommodation rates will be harder to find.

Low Season:

The hot rainy period, from November to April, marks the low season in Windhoek. Temperatures peak at around 32 degrees Celsius, which combined with an increase in rainfall and higher humidity, can be discouraging for some tourists. This can however be a great time to look for low season room rates and airfares.

If you do choose to book a flight to Windhoek in November, why not plan your trip to coincide with The Windhoek Jazz Festival? This event showcases some of the best southern African singers and musicians.

City overview

The capital of Namibia may not be an obvious tourist destination, but it still has its attractions for visitors willing to try something new. It's the centre of the country's substantial safari industry, while the city itself displays a blend of British, German and African influences.

Most of Windhoek is not particularly picturesque, but those who persevere will find pockets of interest. The National Gallery is worth seeing. Christ Church is an attractive building — now over 100 years old — which is strikingly constructed from the local quartz sandstone. It's on the memorably named Fidel Castro Street.

Getting around Windhoek

Windhoek does not have a bus network, but there are plenty of shared taxis. These operate in a similar manner to South African "combi" taxis: you hail a taxi by flagging it down in the street. Their routes are flexible, so don't be worried if you turn down an unfamiliar road.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Flights to Windhoek will arrive at the city's main international airport, which is Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH). The most practical way to reach the centre from the airport is by renting a private taxi which should take around an hour. The airport is located around 26 miles (42 km) south of the city centre. The much closer Eros Airport (ERS), less than 5 miles (8 km) out of town, is used only occasionally.
