Why Windhoek is Following The Rivers Bend

Imagine living in a city where the residents of that city live together with the nature, utilising the natural world already in existence as a means of creating community living.

That is not too far away for Windhoekers as the River Walk Project is underway. The project aims to transform Windhoek’s riverbeds into safe communal areas where communities can come together to enjoy, a hub for all from joggers to restaurant lovers.

Phase one of the project aims to connect Avis Dam to Goreangab Dam to allow people to jog, cycle or walk in a beautiful natural space while also improving security in areas that are often deemed dangerous, namely Windhoek’s riverbed spaces.
