“Guests receive a warm welcome and expert hospitality at Galton House, a small boutique guesthouse named after the early explorer Sir Francis Galton in the upmarket suburb of Windhoek. The rooms are nicely designed and decorated with a minimalist style with flashes of bright colour. There’s a homely, comfortable feel, and the food is particularly good thanks to a kitchen that produces delicious and healthy dishes. We'd recommend Galton House as a well-run overnight stop in Windhoek before or after your Namibia safari."
