Your private guide will meet you on arrival at Windhoek International Airport and take you to the Elegant Guesthouse where you will spend the night. After a long plane journey, this tranquil and intimate guesthouse is the ideal place to relax and rest up in preparation for the adventures that lie ahead. You can relax in the pool garden and soak up the sunshine or take in a short tour of the city with your guide. Windhoek was established by the German colonial administration and is situated in the highlands where temperatures are much cooler than in the rest of the country. It is a vibrant African city where Victorian-era German architecture rubs shoulders with modern high-rise buildings, and where Herero women dressed in their voluminous finery and headdresses walk the streets alongside sharp-suited executives.
You have a choice of many interesting venues for dinner in the city, from traditional African fare to German dishes such as eisbein and sauerkraut. Windhoek’s most famous restaurant, Joe’s Beerhouse, is a five-minute stroll away from the Elegant Guesthouse. This lively establishment serves hearty Namibian dishes including a selection of game meats, and the collection of antique décor items is a fitting introduction to Namibian culture.
