WHEN TO GO

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.

SHOULDER SEASON
(MAY & NOV)

Good months for cheaper accommodation and higher availability. Heavy rains sometimes occur in November in intense short bursts. May is mild and a lovely month in which to travel.

LOW SEASON
(DEC & APR)

Some tracks become impassable during the rains that begin in earnest in December. Humidity and high temperatures are typical features of the weather during this period. Apart from a brief high season around Christmas/New Year, prices are low and availability generally high.
