Windhoek
Many visitors to Namibia start their adventure in Windhoek, the capital and largest city of this South African country. Nama, Herero, German, Afrikaans, and British cultures have influenced the growth and development of Windhoek. Visit the statue of Hosea Kutako, a nationalist hero, in the gardens surrounding the Tintenpalast, the seat of the Namibian legislature, or chow down on ostrich kebab or zebra steak at Joe’s Beerhouse before leaving on a safari into the Namibian wilderness.

Find us at the well-known Heja Game Lodge only 20km from Windhoek (direction of the International Airport). Situated in a beautiful landscape are two separate trails with twenty 3D targets that you can attempt to hit with your bow and arrow while taking a walk through nature. Traditional bow shooting is enjoyed in nature and we use life-size 3D animals, made from special foam, as targets. You shoot without any support such mechanical or fixed sights, because the aiming is done "instinctively". A good technique and lots of practice will improve your aiming skills. At the same time it's great fun even for the complete beginner. We're open every Saturday, Sunday and public holidays from 09h00 - 17h00. Special events such as team building and birthdays can be arranged on request, also for during the week. It's recommended that larger groups always book in advance. less
