When to visit Namibia - seasons
A country dominated by desert Nambia has a generally dry and pleasant climate – making it a good country to visit year round. It can receive a small amount of rain during the months of December and March which can also be very hot. During this time you can experience some humid days and localised thunderstorms – more common in the centre and east of the country. April and May are lovely months with increasingly dry days complementing the greener landscape. Namibia cools down from June to August with nights becoming colder and dropping to below freezing in some desert areas! This is a good time to see animals as they gravitate around waterholes. The weather warms up in September and October and the animals further concentrate around the last of the available water in a landscape that has dried out substantially. November can be variable – often hot and dry but sometimes the first clouds gather and the first rains can come early.
