Maps and Orientation of the Country

The main regions of Namibia are further divided into a series of administrative districts, namely Erongo, Hardap, Karas, Khomas, Kunene, Ohangwena, Okavango, Omaheke, Omusati, Oshana, Oshikoto and Otjozondjupa.

Windhoek resides within the Khomas district, where it is bisected by the busy Independence Avenue. Much of Windhoek's administrative business is carried out around Independence Avenue, with its Gustav Voigts Centre store being a good place to shop for maps and pick up some souvenirs. Further shopping opportunities are centred around the Post Street pedestrian mall.
