When to Visit

Namibia is a year-round destination with consistently sunny climates. However, to enjoy the landscapes in their best light and for epic wildlife viewing, the dry winter season (May through October) is most recommended. Cooler temperatures during this period make outdoor pursuits and wildlife spotting in places like Etosha National Park quite splendid.

The short rainy season from February to April, despite fewer wildlife viewing opportunities, paints the landscape a beautiful green, offering great photo opportunities with fewer crowds.
