Namibia is popular for its beautiful natural surroundings, and you can enjoy it most when its secrets are unravelled. Though the official language of the country is English, a major proportion of the citizens speak Afrikaans. The currencies in use here are Namibian dollar (NAD) and South African rand (ZAR). You can also include a visit to Windhoek, Keetmanshoop, Swakopmund, Lüderitz, and many other cities when planning a holiday in Namibia.
Windhoek is the capital city of Namibia, and is served by Hosea Kutako International Airport. This is not much of a tourist-oriented city, but you can still explore a few interesting places here. Visit Christuskirche, an old and beautiful church. See the beautiful building of the Parliament of Namibia. You must also visit Alte Feste, the fort which had been turned into a National Museum. It showcases the fight for freedom of the Namibians in the past. This city is best explored with the help of a car rental in Namibia.
Hire a car in Namibia and explore all that Keetmanshoop has to offer. Enjoy an exhilarating hiking experience at the volcanic peak of Burkarrros. However, this place is not for amateur hikers, and you should take some precautions when you go hiking here. You can also go and explore the Mesosaurus Tenuidens Fossil Site, where you will find the best fossilized parts of this creature. You will admire the amazing rock formations and forests here. Visit also the Rhenish church here, which houses a small museum.
This is a unique city, as it is bounded by the sea on one side and by the desert on another. You can go for an impressive number of exhilarating activities with the help of the local adventure agents. Go parasailing, quad biking, sand boarding, and shark fishing, and try a variety of other activities in this city. You can also view the Hohenzollern Building, which is a marine memorial. Or, you can also go to the beach and interact with the locals, or simply relax under the African sun.
Head north from Swakopmund to reach Cape Cross, where you might find some seals, if you are lucky. You can also visit the city of Lüderitz, where you will find many German buildings and ruins. Namibia boasts of many national parks which are home to some of the most exotic species in the world. Getting a car for hire in Namibia to visit all these places, is surely a good idea.
