Namibia, with its heart-stopping desert landscapes that march to the horizons and beyond, has always been a place of brutal glamour, attracting world travellers tired of the picture postcard prettiness of softer climes.
In the heart of this thriving country with its astounding heritage of African nobility and European sophistication is Windhoek, a city that stands as an icon of independence in a challenging environment. With desert on all sides, the cosmopolitan community that Windhoek shelters, makes its own rules, faces life eye to eye, and welcomes visitors of like mind.
Pulsing with life, opportunity and a sparkle of adventure, Windhoek has a rich cultural life and activities happily mix and match to produce some interesting combinations. The sounds and smells of Africa abound in a visit to one of the markets. The charm of an African market lies in its informality.
The Kalahari Sands Hotel is an ideal base from which to explore the magic of this vibrant African country.
