Officially titled the Republic of Namibia this is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean. It shares land borders with Angola and Zambia to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east.
Although it does not border with Zimbabwe, less than 200 metres of riverbed (essentially the Zambia/Botswana border) separates them at their closest points.
It gained independence from South Africa in 1990, following the Namibian War of Independence. Its capital and largest city is Windhoek. Namibia is a member state of the United Nations (UN), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union (AU), and the Commonwealth of Nations.
Namibia has a population of 2.1 million people and a stable multi-party parliamentary democracy.
Hilton Hotel Windhoek Building
This hotel is prominently situated as the city centre is entered from the Hosea Kutako International Airport along Sam Nujoma Avenue. The accommodation occupies the southernmost portion of the larger property. The elevated Supreme Court and Bank of Namibia overlook the site to the east, and the City Council Building to the south.
The Hilton Hotel enjoys panoramic views of the city and surrounding mountains to the west and southwest. It will also have a commanding view of the new development to the north and, in particular, the tree-lined pedestrian spine alongside which the retail, office, and other components will be arranged.
