When is the Best Time to Visit Namibia?

Namibia’s safari seasons are as varied as its landscapes, with each season offering unique delights:

Dry Season

(May to October)

The dry season, spanning from May to October, is typically considered the best time to visit Namibia for most travellers. During this period, the weather is characterised by clear skies, little to no rainfall, and comfortable temperatures, making it ideal for wildlife viewing and outdoor activities.

  • Wildlife Viewing: With the scarcity of water, wildlife congregates around waterholes, providing excellent opportunities for game viewing, particularly in parks like Etosha National Park. The dry vegetation also makes it easier to spot animals against the backdrop of the landscape.
  • Safari: The dry season is prime season for a Namibia safari, as the reduced vegetation improves visibility, and animals are drawn to water sources, making them easier to spot.
  • Photography: The clear skies and vibrant colours of the desert landscapes during the dry season offer ideal conditions for photography enthusiasts.

Wet Season

(November to April) 

The wet season falls from November to April, and surprisingly brings higher temperatures along with the occasional rainfall to Namibia. While less popular among tourists, the wet season offers its own unique attractions and experiences.

  • Landscape Transformation: The rains transform the arid landscapes into lush, green expanses, particularly in the northern regions of Namibia. This can create stunning scenery and dramatic contrasts for photography.
  • Birdwatching: The wet season attracts migratory birds to Namibia, making it a paradise for birdwatchers. Wetlands and waterholes become bustling hubs of avian activity, offering excellent opportunities for birdwatching.
