Namibia is a year-round destination, with an average temperature of 23 degree Celsius, but the best time to visit depends on what you want to do or see. Here are some considerations:


Dry Season 

May to October

This is the peak tourist season. The weather is dry and cooler and vegetation is sparser, making it ideal for wildlife viewings as animals gather around waterholes. The best time of year for activities like safaris, dune climbing and exploring national parks

Wet Season 

November to April

The wet season brings lush landscapes and baby animals, which can be a rewarding sight for nature enthusiasts. A prime season for birdwatching. Please note, however, that some roads may become impassable due to heavy rains.


Shoulder Season

April to May and September to October

These months offer a balance between favourable weather and fewer crowds, making it an excellent time for wildlife viewing and outdoor activities.



Peak of Wet Season 

December to March

While it's a rainy season, it does not rain continuous. Accommodations may offer lower prices during this time, but once again some roads may be challenging to navigate.

Overall, the best time to travel to Namibia depends on your interests. If you want to focus on wildlife and outdoor activities, the dry season is usually recommended. However, if you prefer lush landscapes and are not deterred by occasional rain, the wet season can provide unique experiences. It is essential to plan your trip according to your preferences and the specific experiences you seek.
