WINDHOEK COUNTRY CLUB RESORT
Sustainable Minerals '18 is to be held at the Windhoek Country Club Resort.
Developed as a resort within the city, the Windhoek Country Club Resort offers conference delegates the best of both worlds. The resort’s unique combination of exceptional service, luxury accommodation and tranquil setting has ensured that it remains the best in comfort and entertainment in Namibia. Enjoy a rendezvous with Lady Luck at the Desert Jewel Casino, play a round of golf on the superb 18-hole golf course, relax in the lazy river or take in any one of Windhoek’s cultural sites.
Windhoek is Namibia's capital and largest city. It is in the geographic centre of the country at an elevation of 1,600m, in a beautiful valley bordered by the Eros Mountains in the north and the Auas mountains to the south. Towards the west stretches the Khomas Highland to the Namib and the coast.
The extremely clean city centre is characterised by a proliferation of German style buildings, a lasting reminder of Namibia's early colonial history. Early buildings such as the Alte Feste (old fort), Christuskirche and Tintenpalast (the parliament buildings) are of particular historical interest. In a wonderful display of irony, the Alte Feste Fort, once the bastion of German colonialism, now houses the National Museum which places particular emphasis on the freedom struggle and Namibian independence, right in front of the fort is the iconic Reiterdenkmal (equestrian memorial). Other notable buildings in Windhoek include St Mary's Cathedral and the Turnhalle Building.
