Hours of Operation

Shops in Windhoek and Swakopmund are generally open 9–5, though some close for lunch and then stay open a bit later into the evening. Banking hours are 8:30–3:30 weekdays, and 8:30–noon on Saturday. Restaurants vary but usually operate noon–3 and 6–10, although cafés frequently stay open all day. Nightclubs stay open late; the closing hour usually depends on the number of customers. Even on public holidays many shops will be open—only banks, government offices, and business premises will close.
