Seattle: Count on about 38 hours, door-to-door. There are direct WDH to Frankfurt flights. Other than that, all flights stop in Joburg. Joburg to the US is direct (ATL or IAD) or via Europe. Namibia is very out of the way but that's part of its zen charm. - Jan 2021

We traveled from DC through Frankfurt, then Accra. The entire trip took about two days. Be prepared to check and recheck your luggage---Air Namibia doesn't have any agreements with other airlines. - May 2013

Travel from Washington, DC to Windhoek via Johannesburg takes about 18 hours. If you miss the Johannesburg connection, you may have to spend the night. Windhoek is about a 2 hour flight from Johannesburg. - Jan 2013

Oregon....WHK to Frankfurt, then direct to Portland (overnight in Frankfurt). Travel takes more than 24 hrs. Alternatively, short hop to Jo'burg, SA, and then via London or long direct to NY (17 hr flight!). - Jul 2012
