Spend time in Windhoek before your flight..
Need to spend a few hours in Windhoek before your flight back home? Here’s some tips of what you can do to make up time…
Start with breakfast or lunch at Krisjans Bistro on the corner of Lazarett and Robert Mugabe Street.
Further down Robert Mugabe Street you’ll find a big gold building in the shape of a Coffee Percolator… NIMMS (National Independance Memorial Museum).
If museums aren’t your thing, just go straight up to the restaurant on 4th floor where you will see the most magnificent view of our beautiful city.
Only 10mins walk from NIMMS you can buy your last Namibian Handmade Souvenir or just stroll through and enjoy our creativity at Craft Centre in the Old Breweries building in Tal street. Rumor has it that Craft Cafe, the German coffee shop on the second floor, serves the best apple crumble in town 🙂
In Independence street (our main road) you’ll find Cramer’s and Slowtown next to each other, don’t walk past it! Do you know the word “affogato”? Its a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso…just saying, coffee and ice cream goes great together, so Cramer’s is the place to be.
But what goes the best with a cup of coffee? Another cup! Right next door at Slowtown you can taste Namibia’s most famous roasted coffee and buy some to take home with you because you will crave some at home, believe me.
Remember that Hosea Kutako International Airport is about 40mins drive away from the city and our public transport isn’t as great as what you may be used to, so plan your stay well.
CityCab, Windhoek Airport Shuttle cost about N$300 per person and can be booked online.
Unfortunately petty theft may occur in our streets, please don’t be afraid to Travel Namibia, just be wake up. Walking around at night is not recommended, especially when you travel alone. Don’t leave any luggage, backpack, handbag, purse or phone unattended, anywhere. Don’t trust anyone to help you draw some money at ATM’s.
Most importantly enjoy your stay!!!
