Amazing, and starry, starry skies at night. - Jan 2021

Good. - Jun 2015

Namibia is one of the darkest places on the planet. You will never see stars like you do here---they're absolutely incredible. Bring a telescope or head out to a few of the lodges near Windhoek that have their own giant telescopes set up to really enjoy the view. - May 2013

Fabulous! Windhoek is considered high altitude so air is a bit thinner. - Jan 2013

Great. No pollution except for some field fires in the winter. No humidity in the winter and this is tough on some folks (dry skin, upper respiratory illness, etc.). - Jul 2012
