Information about Windhoek

Airport - If you're arriving in Namibia by aeroplane, this is most likely to be via Hosea Kutako International Airport. There are flights within Namibia connecting its towns, but this is not a very common way to get around the country. Windhoek also has a municipal airport called Eros. This is quite close to the centre of the city and is practical for business travellers in particular.
Shopping - There is a craft market in Post Street Mall in central Windhoek, though prices are quite high. For cheaper prices, go to the craft market in Okahanja, which is about an hour north of Windhoek. You can hitchhike to Okahanja or catch a combie. There are a number of arcades and small shopping centres in the centre of Windhoek. Between them you can find pretty much anything you need. There is also a larger mall called Maerua Park in the south end of the city.
