Located in the heart of the country, Namibia's capital city Windhoek receives a constant influx of tourists, in part because of its international airport.
Let the collections at National Museum of Namibia and Trans-Namib Railroad Museum capture your imagination. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Namibia Craft Centre and Herrle & Herma Jewellers. There's much more to do: stroll through Deadvlei, get engrossed in the history at Cuno Hoffmeister Memorial Observatory, engage your brain at Geological Survey Museum, and take in the exciting artwork at Pure & Simple Art Gallery.

For other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Windhoek road trip planning website.

Melbourne, Australia to Windhoek is an approximately 27- hour flight. You'll gain 9 hours traveling from Melbourne to Windhoek due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Melbourne in March, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Windhoek: temperatures range from 34°C by day to 18°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) so you can travel to Luderitz.
