Namibia has 300 days of sunshine a year and each season has its
unique qualities, so there really is no bad time to visit
High Season (Jun–Oct)
Accommodation is at a premium, especially in Etosha in July and August – book months in advance. Nights can be cold early in the season, while temperatures soar by September.

Low Season (Dec–Apr)
Some tracks become impassable during the rains that begin in earnest in December. Humidity and high temperatures describe the season well. Apart from a brief high season around Christmas/New Year, prices are low and availability generally high.
