Namibia in April

April is a lovely time to visit Namibia especially if you’re a photographer: the weather is mild, the skies are clear and the landscapes are green. It’s still the low season so you can get good deals on room rates.

Namibia in June

Desert temperatures drop off in June: while day times are pleasant, nights can be freezing. Without rain, the landscape has become much drier, and vegetation sparser, making this a good time for a visit to Etosha, where it’s just started to become easy to spot animals congregating around waterholes.

Namibia in July

July is the driest month of the year, so it’s an excellent time to visit the game parks, especially Etosha, where it’s easy to see hundreds of animals vying for space around waterholes. Day time temperatures are mild and night time temperatures can drop well below freezing.
