Windhoek in detail

Travel with Children

Windhoek has very few child-friendly attractions – booking a hotel with a swimming pool may be a lifesaver to compensate for the lack of other attractions for children to enjoy.

Few restaurants will make any concessions to children (high chairs are rarely available), although children are made to feel welcome in many restaurants; the most upmarket places can be exceptions.

Family rooms and chalets are normally available for only slightly more than double rooms; these normally consist of one double bed and two single beds. Otherwise, it’s usually easy to arrange more beds in a standard adult double room for a minimal extra charge.

Canned baby foods, powdered milk, disposable nappies and the like are available in most large supermarkets.
