Windhoek's Local Economy and the Great Outdoors

As the capital and economic center of Namibia, Windhoek's economy comprises several industries including tourism, communications, retail, and transport, with finance and business services also playing a major role. A number of mines have their offices inside the city center and there are also several higher learning institutions. To escape the hustle and bustle of the city, residents can enjoy Windhoek's wildlife and beautiful surrounding landscape at the NamibRand Nature reserve or the Daan Viljoen Game Reserve where visitors explore the walking paths. Safaris, horseback tours, and flying tours are all available for those who want to make the most of Windhoek's great outdoors.
