    We bought an iron giraffe from Morris, the very talented and very nice blacksmith under the balcony. All you eat is fresh made in the kitchen. Friendly personal and lovely lunch with a view on the busy parking and street.

    This was one of the most colorful part of our trip. If you are a photographer, I'd say take a whole day, because you'll be stopping a lot. The colors, the panorama. Delightful.
    We also came across 3 dudes on bicycles. Which is absolutely crazy. Especially due to the temperatures.

    We came to the reserve in a small Toyota. The usual way of doing things would be to drive 3m to the lodge, where a fee will have to be paid. We weren't told so we started on the scenic game drive right away, not knowing it was highly unsuitable for small, front wheel cars. I did manage, removing stones and by some fancy driving.
    However, we did see many anmials, giraffes, gnus, all kinds of antelopes and smaller animals.
    So if you happen to have a 4x4 it is very well worth the trip.

    It was our first trip to Namibia. This museum is very well done. Very informative for those who don't know the history of this young country.

    classic church architecture, placed on a strategic position, so you can't really miss it. On the other hand it's in a middle of a roundabout, which devalues it's architecture if you ask me.

    Had a year en function there, was so relaxing. Frits made our game drive fun and interesting, learned some new stuff that I did not know. Although it is very dry, Okapuka still takes care of the animals.We had a great laugh wile the ostriches chased the warthogs around.

    My husband loves trains so this was a great place to spend a couple of hours. Easy to walk to and we were the only ones there.

    A Very Clean mall with very clean toilets, there is a large selection of nice shops and plenty of places to eat.
    People are friendly and smiling, the cinema is nice but they don't have the best selection of candy and such.

    In terms of shopping and food, the Grove has better options. That said, we loved the family entertainment options at this mall. Our kids loved the climbing wall, trampolining, glow in the dark golf and we all enjoyed the ten-pin bowling - great family activity. We found ourselves going back a couple of times during our holiday in Windhoek. Would highly recommend the entertainment area of Maerua Mall.

    Our guide was Lawrence. This gentleman is exceptionally knowledgeable and well informed about his own country. A self drive tour would have meant we would have missed so much. Lawrence did an excellent job, showing flexibility when conditions changed, and kept a close eye on any stragglers when we were walking in isolated areas.The crew, who set up the camps, and prepared the meals were very efficient and part of the experience. The meals were excellent, and considering the desert conditions, just amazing.

    Heroes acre is an official war memorial located in the Auas mountains about 12 km from Windhoek centre. The inauguration took place on 26-08-2002.
    Impressive monument, worth a visit

    A wonderful cross section of plant types in Namibia. It was winter, so a little stark, but the signage is good. We enjoyed wandering for a few hours. The birds were fun, saw some bright ones! And it is free!

    Nice gardens to stroll when they are not chained shut or closed for walking around. I'm not sure why one can't access.

    I like the idea of presenting it for the people.
    I am worried about the preservation, since many people like to look with their hands.

    So we went on a Saturday night. Not the best idea as the place was filled with shady characters and abounded with partiers and ladies of the night. The food was so-so though the chili creme brule was fantastic. We were also kept awake by the partying coming from the rooftop lounge. If you're interested in a good time I'm sure the Avani would be right up your alley.
