Best time to visit Namibia
If you’re after pleasant daytime temperatures and excellent wildlife viewing, the winter season (between April and October) is the best time to travel to Namibia. This is when skies are clear, the chance of rain is low, and game viewing opportunities are at their best. The winter months are also a great time to experience the Namib Desert and Sossusvlei’s towering dunes.See all Namibia tours

May to October: Daytime temperatures are mild throughout the cooler winter months, and exploring the area will be more enjoyable from May to October. The only downside to visiting during the winter? Gusts of powerful winds sometimes sweep through the area, bringing hot air and coarse dust with it. Remember to pack warm winter clothing if you’re visiting in winter as evenings and early mornings are chilly.
November to April: If you choose to visit during the summer months, be aware that it can get uncomfortably hot from November to April, with temperatures often hovering around the high 30s and occasionally reaching 40°C. Be sure to pack accordingly and always carry plenty of water.
