Cheap flights to Windhoek, Namibia

See all USA departure airports for flights to Windhoek

The capital of Namibia may not be an obvious tourist destination, but it still has its attractions for the visitor willing to try something new. It's the center 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.

Best Time to Fly to Windhoek

The hottest time to visit is between October and February but December sees the most rainfall. Cooler months, which also tend to be dry, are between May and August.

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.
