Vibrant, ever-changing Windhoek is home to some incredible accommodations with uniquely Namibian sensibilities. Windhoek, Namibia’s capital city, has so much german colonial influence as it was once colonized by German. You get to see this from the architecture within the city. If you’re passing through on your way to a safari adventure, Windhoek is a fascinating place to stop and explore. These are my ten picks of very affordable places to stay in the city.
