Shop for authentic souvenirs at one of the many colorful stalls at the Namibia Craft Center. Windhoek offers plenty of the best accommodations and even Airbnb vacation rentals for your trip. We have put together a list of some of the best self-catering accommodations in Windhoek, Namibia.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities.
