Step into Windhoek with Chameleon Safaris, the gate to exploring Namibia. This city, nestled among the Eros, Auas, and Khomas Hochland mountains, holds a blend of history and modernity. Its roots trace back to 1840 when Jan Jonker Afrikaner settled here, but the modern city was sculpted later by Kurt Von Francois in 1890. The Alte Feste (Old Fortress), the oldest building in Windhoek, is a testament to the city’s layered history.
Windhoek is not just about history; it’s Namibia’s bustling capital. Though modest by international standards, it holds a uniquely unique charm. The city blends German and Namibian architectural influences, reflecting its colonial past and present-day cultural diversity. The Independence Avenue, once known as Kaiser Street, now hosts a range of businesses, a sign of Windhoek’s evolving narrative.
