Etosha National Park – Windhoek, Namibia
Please note that as this is a combo tour some of your fellow travellers might be ending their journey in Windhoek. You might also have some new people joining the tour who can meet in the welcome meeting. We depart from the Game Park today and make our way south through the Namibian countryside to Windhoek.
This is Namibia’s capital, with a population of around 230,000 and an altitude of 1,654 metres. During WW1, Windhoek was taken over by South African troops and was converted into a British dominion. Until Namibia’s independence in 1990, Windhoek was known as the capital of Southwest Africa. The city is known as ‘Ai-Gams’ by the Nama, and ‘Otjomuise’ by the Herero, both names referring to the hot springs of the area.
