Discover Windhoek by car: German Oktoberfest in Namibia
Every year the Windhoek Sports Club organises a large Oktoberfest according to German tradition. Under the African sun there is fresh draft beer, German cuisine and plenty of music.
Of course, this event would not be the same without the Queen of the Oktoberfest competition and the wide-ranging supporting programme that includes games and a varied entertainment offering for children. Experience Windhoek and its German traditions by car. From the car rental office in Windhoek you can easily drive to the largest sports club in Namibia in Sean Mc Bride Street in the south of the city. This is where Windhoek celebrates carnival – highlights include the masked ball and cabaret evenings.
The coast of Namibia: car exploration tour from Windhoek
The cold water on the coast of Namibia, which is over 1,500 km long, is not suitable for bathing.
Nevertheless, it is worth taking a trip by car from Windhoek to the nature reserves of the Dorob National Park. Hire a cabriolet to get the most of the drive along the coast road of Swakopmund or to Luderitz.
You can visit small colonial towns with their quaint flair or set off for a safari along the coast of Namibia. The rocky beaches are home to large colonies of seals, jackass penguins and many bird species. With some luck you can also watch dolphins and flamingos. Deep-sea fishing excursions are offered in the port towns of Namibia.
Excursions by car in Windhoek: Namib Rand Nature Reserve
In the south of Namibia lies one of the most beautiful natural reserves in the country. German-Namibian Albi Brückner, whose dream was to create a large protected area from former animal farms, realised his ambitions by creating this impressive private nature reserve. In the Namib Rand Nature Reserve giraffes, leopards and many other animals live in their natural environment. From the car rental office in Windhoek you can reach the Namib Rand Nature Reserve by car in about 5 hours. In the reserve you can stay in romantic lodges, experience the thrill of balloon flights and enjoy the amazing views, and go on guided hikes on which you learn all about the mysteries of the desert.
