Newspaper Salesman Windhoek

A newspaper salesman counts his money for the day. There are three newspapers in available in Namibia: the German "Allgemeine Zeitung" (AZ), founded in 1916, the "Namibian" in English, and the "Republikein" in Afrikaans.

Old Cemetery Windhoek

The Old Graveyard is located at Robert Mugabe Avenue, a peaceful place with many old graves. Despite being closed in 1927, many of the graves are still well maintained.

World War II Memorial Windhoek

Right across the old graveyard you will find the World War II Memorial, the "Cross of Sacrifice" which was unveiled in November 1981. It remembers the victims who died fighting against the Germans during the First and Second World Wars. A series of headstones stand on three sides of the Cross giving the names of individuals who died.

Owela Museum Windhoek

The Owela Museum features stunning cultural displays and dioramas from Namibian life and history. The photo shows the display on the Cheetah, Africa's most endangered big cat. The Museum is located on Robert Mugabe Avenue.

C26 Namibia

If your travel schedule permits, we recommend to take a half-day sidetrip on the C26 to the Gamsberg Pass and the spectacular scenery of the Khomas Hochland area, Namibias central highlands. The drive is roughly 120 km, mostly gravel road, so you will have a first impression of the road conditions in Namibia!

Gamsberg Pass Namibia

At the highest point of the C26 you will find the Gamsberg Pass at an altitude of almost 2,000 meters, providing beautiful views across the rolling hills of the highlands.

Sunset over Winhoek

When we were back, we came just in time for a fantastic sunset over Namibia's capital, with a sky that looks like being on fire. Breathtaking.
