Itinerary

Starting at Chameleon Backpackers, we make our way into the city centre on foot learning about the different Namibian heroes that the streets are named after. We pass the Old Breweries, now the Namibian Craft Centre, before arriving on Independence Ave. From here, we make our way to Cramer’s Cafe, another pick up point and the official starting point of this tour.
From here, we learn about modern day Windhoek, get a feel for the buzz of the city (except on Sundays when it’s a little quiet), learn about Zoo Park, explore the ChristusKirche aka Christ Church, TintenPalast or Ink Palace (Namibia’s Parliament), Parliament Gardens, and the Alte Feste aka Old Fort, learning about both the history of Windhoek and Namibia and how it was establish, to how it is today from everything from the social to the political.

From here, we make our way back down to Independence Ave where our tour ends.

Word Of Mouth

This 2 hour walking tour is just brilliant. Visited the Lutheran Church, Parliament buildings and gardens, Museum and so much more. This young lady told us all about the history and fight for independence and about her life growing up here. Well worth it!!
