When is the best safari season to visit Namibia?
With over 300 days of sunshine per year, Namibia is considered a year round travel destination!
Average temperatures in winter (May to September) are 18?25? C and the days are cooler and drier (night temperatures can be very cold, dropping to below freezing in some desert areas). Namibia does not receive rainfall during the winter months, and as a result the wildlife viewing is more concentrated around the watering holes. This is considered the best time to visit Namibia.
The summer months (December to March) can be hot with temperatures of 35?40? C. Temperatures along the coastal areas are cooled by the Benguela Current and are comfortable all year round.
Most of the countryside is totally unrecognizable after the rains, which fall mostly in summer from February to March, as the landscape is green and full of unusual flowering plants.
Namibia is a dry country, so make sure you pack lip balm, a scarf and sarong, a good hat and sunscreen if you intend to visit.
