Due to nature of the safari tour, rugged terrain and extremely dusty conditions, we would like to urge to carefully pack all sensitive photographic, electronic and filming equipment, preferably in the dust-proof bags.
Namibia has one of the loveliest climates in the world and it’s fine to visit all year round . Dry, sunny and pleasant most of the year, Namibia provides excellent opportunity to travel without worrying about the weather. Climate is classified as sub-tropical.
Country receives only a fraction of the rain experienced by countries further east or north Africa. Between about mid-November to March some days will be humid and rain may follow, often in localized afternoon thunderstorms.
April and especially May are often lovely months in Namibia. Increasingly dry, with a real freshness in the air, and much greenery in the landscape; at this time the air is clear and largely free from dust. From June to August Namibia cools down and dries out more; nights can become cold, dropping below freezing in some desert areas. As the landscape dries so the game in the north of the country gravitates more to waterholes, and is more easily seen by visitors at the national parks and nature sanctuaries. By September and October it warms up again; game-viewing in most areas is at its best, although there’s often a lot of dust around and the vegetation has lost its vibrancy.
November is a highly variable month. Sometimes the hot, dry weather will continue, at other times the sky will fill with clouds and threaten to rain, but if you’re lucky enough to witness the first rains of the season, you’ll never forget the drama.
