Overview

Windhoek, Namibia’s capital city, is described as a city with a ‘continental’ atmosphere and this can be ascribed to its architecture – historical buildings dating back to German colonial rule. Windhoek was initially known as Ai-gams a Nama word meaning ‘firewater’, ‘steam’ or ‘smoke’ because of the area’s plentiful hot springs.

Nothing really special here. Who goes to Namibia for a casino anyway? There were some nice stores around it, so we spent most of our time shopping around the casino rather staying in it
