2. Windhoek

Windhoek is the capital and largest city of Namibia, and is located in a basin between the Khomas Highland, Auas and Eros Mountains. It is 1,680 metres above sea level, 650 km north of the Orange River and 360 km from the Atlantic seaboard.

Whether due to pure luck or a brilliant stroke of Germanic planning, the city is situated in almost the countries epicenter. This location has obvious benefits when it comes to governing a country the size of Namibia, and also makes it the ideal place to start and plan any Namibian travel.
