Best Time To Go
Namibia enjoys sunshine virtually every day of the year, and you can expect hot summers (October – April) and pleasant winters (May – September) in this arid climate. Daytime summer temperatures can rise to 40ºC/104ºF and drop to around 20ºC/68ºF at night. Winter days are sunny and mild to warm with temperatures of about 25ºC/77ºF, which may drop to as low as 5ºC/41ºF at night. The best birding is during summer and best game viewing months during winter when animals congregate at watering holes and daytime temperatures are milder.
