The Republic of Namibia’s capital and biggest city is Windhoek.
It is situated in central Namibia, on the Khomas Highland plateau, at an elevation of roughly 1,700 meters (5,600 feet). Windhoek had a population of 322,500 people in 2012, with an inflow of people from all around Namibia.
Windhoek is the country’s social, economic, political, and cultural hub. There is a headquarters for almost every Namibian national industry, administrative organization, educational, and cultural institution.
This is the starting point for most safaris in Namibia, as well as the initial point of entrance into Namibia if arriving by airline.
Although English is widely spoken across Namibia (it being the country’s official language and the medium of instruction in most schools), Afrikaans (a Dutch-like language) is used as a lingua franca in many urban areas, since Afrikaans is spoken by 50% of the Namibian population. In tourism, German is commonly spoken. Oshiwambo is the mother language of 50 percent of Namibians.
