The 2007 African Chess Championships : Winhoek, Namibia, Africa.

Below: The Safari Court Hotel - Venue of the Chess Tournament

Windhoek (pronounced "Vind hook") meaning, "Card of Wind" is the Capital of Namibia, the host Country of the 2007 African Individual Chess Championship. Windhoek is a city traditionally known for its hot Springs - the "Ai-Gams/Otjomuise" (translated "hot springs/a place of steam" ). As a matter of fact, the early settlers came to settle here because of its hot springs.

With this historical background, it is then safe to say Windhoek, the place of hot springs or a place of steam is hosting some of the best chess players of Africa (hot chess players) and its going to get really hot very soon in a city of hot spring with all the ongoing chess commotion at the Safari Court Hotel.
