Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Windhoek Airport! Then head to the city and drive through its diverse neighborhoods to get a feel for the local atmosphere. Visit the National Gallery of Namibia, and go to one of the city’s theaters or cultural centers to see performances by local artists.

Drive your rental to a nearby nature park or conservation area to see cheetahs, lions, elephants, and other wildlife.
