Best Time to Visit Namibia

People always ask us when is the best time to visit Namibia. The truth is, there is no bad time to go, but depending on what you wish to see, certain months are better than others. For optimum game viewing on safari, the dry season months of April to October are best.

Best time to visit

Daytime temperatures during this period range from 20 to 30°C, with chilly mornings and evenings. July to December are by far the busiest months for tourism, so if you are planning to visit during this time it is important to book flights and accommodation as far in advance as possible. November to March is known as the rainy season. This is also when the temperatures are at their highest, sometimes reaching as high as 45°C in the far north and south of the country. Rains are mostly short showers in the afternoon, so they don’t have to impact your vacation too heavily. At this time of year, the scenery is greener and you have the chance to see new-born animals. Birdwatching is best after the rains when numerous flooded depressions attract migrant species.
