Namibia is… GERMAN?!

Travel
Yesterday, I arrived in Namibia (my 143rd country!) to start a 10 day tour with G Adventures! But as I’ve been wandering around the unique capital city of Windhoek, I couldn’t help but notice how GERMAN everything feels. Seriously, the culture is bizarre here in Namibia!

As I investigated further, I discovered that Namibia was a German colony (from 1884 – 1915), and despite 103 years of separation since the Germans left, their influence is still deeply rooted in Namibian society today.

I became so fascinated by this German-Namibian culture, because the vast majority of the world that I’ve seen has been conquered by either the British, French, Spanish, Portuguese or Dutch… Not the Germans.

Here is a fun video I put together today all about my observations on German-influenced Namibia.

Just out of curiosity — Is this all news to you? Or did you know that Namibia is German-influenced?
