Namibian Cities

Oranjemund

Literally meaning at the mouth of the Orange, this is one of Namibia's most productive diamond areas; the precious stones are carried down by mother nature, from the river's source in the Lesotho highlands.

Walvis Bay

Namibia has the region's only deep-water port, about halfway down the coast, some 250 miles west of Windhoek. There are also port facilities further south, at Lüderitz.

Windhoek

The Namibian capital of Windhoek is a pleasant and compact city which can easily be explored on foot.

The capital of Namibia is located in the middle of the country, at about 1,645m above sea level. The surrounding hills help to protect it from the dry desert winds.

In the 19th century, a Nama leader prized the area from the Herero. The territory then became the capital of the German dependency of South-West Africa in 1892, and was captured by South African troops during World War I.

Many Germans remained in Windhoek, and thus the city still has a Germanic feel.
