Hotel Heinitzburg
Windhoek

For those looking for a conveniently located base with fabulous city and mountain views, the family-owned and run Hotel Heinitzburg is the best option in Windhoek. Originally commissioned in 1914 by Count von Schwerin for his fiancé, Margaret von Heinitz, this restored castle represents the unique blend of colonial German and traditional African heritage of Windhoek. It is now a 16-room luxury hotel with an acclaimed fine-dining restaurant called Leo’s and a fantastic sundowner terrace. The hotel also has an impressive wine cellar with Namibia’s largest collection of South African vintage wines. The hotel décor is glamorous and rooms are generously appointed, each enjoying commanding views of Windhoek and the Khomas Hochland Mountains. Other facilities include a swimming pool and a large manicured garden.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
