Windhoek is a modern, African capital city of a young country.
Its broad, clean streets are lined with good shops, restaurants and gardens.
There are a few large hotels, but many visitors prefer...
...to stay in smaller, more intimate, guest houses.
Windhoek has large expanses of green space in its centre.
Municipal buildings add to the green centre.
Pavement cafes offer a chance to recharge your batteries.
Several buildings remain from Namibia's colonial period...
... and past conflicts between Namibian peoples and Europeans are commemorated....
...but modern Namibia now attracts many visitors for its excellent game viewing.
