Namibia in August

enter image description here

August is a popular time to travel to Namibia, so be sure to have your lodging booked far in advance. It’s an excellent time to see wildlife in the parks and it’s a good time to do outdoors activities in the desert as day time temperatures remain mild (although be prepared for freezing nights). In August you can see beautiful carpets of wild spring flowers covering the arid |Ai-|Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park.
