Average time to visit

The best time to visit Windhoek is between May and September, when it's cool and dry. Summer (November to March) is hot with heavy rains that sometimes make the gravel roads to the Namib completely impassable.

December and January see the main school holidays: much of the populace heads to the coast, so if you visit during this time you may find some shops and restaurants closed.

Rose Gemmell (Staff)

Positioned right next door to the Olive Exclusive, this is a perfect overnight spot for anyone who is having a stop over in Windhoek. The rooms are basic but very comfortable and the main restaurant also serves dinner for guests wanting a quiet night in after an overnight flight.


Louisa Verney (Staff)

The Olive Grove is a wonderful oasis in Windhoek and perfect for an overnight stop. The rooms are simply decorated but really comfortable and the staff were helpful. I had a wonderful afternoon relaxing by the pool, the perfect way to recover from an overnight flight.
