Best Time to Visit:

Shoulder Season: April to May and September to October
  • April and May is when the summer temperatures are starting to cool down and the landscape is still green from the rain.

  • In September and October, the nights are not too cold anymore and the rains haven’t arrived yet, making it the best time to explore Namibia’s desert landscapes.

High Season: July to October
  • As the climate is usually dry and pleasant, these months are best for wildlife viewing in parks.

Low Season: December to April
  • Some days will be humid and rain may follow, often in localized, afternoon thunderstorms. In the Wet season, animals move away from the waterholes and scatter around the park, making the park very quiet.
