Stay safe in Windhoek

  • Leave your handbag or rucksack at the hostel and keep your valuables out of sight. People carrying bags are the most obvious targets for muggers and thieves.
  • Avoid walking at night as the city becomes very quiet after sunset.
  • Attacks may also occur in broad daylight so stay alert. Always walk with purpose as any signs of insecurity will attract unwanted attention.
  • If possible, pair up with other travellers.
