What makes the central highlands so special? The central highlands comprise rolling hills to the west, steep mountains and eastern plateau surrounding the capital city Windhoek. Except for towns and the associated municipal lands, the entire area is commercial farmland. The highlands savanna, which covers these varied landscapes, is dominated by acacia trees and accompanied by a diverse assortment of shrubs, grasses, herbs and bulbs.
