When to go to Namibia, Best time to visit

Our evaluation by month


The Namibia, a wilderness in the western corner of southern Africa, is largely desert, covered by soil that fades from red to pink, orange and gold. It is characterized by rocky expanses, sand dunes and lunar and dry panoramas directly overlooking the coast over the sea to the west, while to the east the plateaus begin to rise with ups and downs that continue to the Kalahari Desert on the border with Botswana. It is also a land of safaris, where you can admire the typical African specimens, giraffes, elephants, lions, zebras, among others.

You will find spectacular views in the Namib Desert, in the Deadvlei and Sossusvlei areas,

with the arid white soil almost petrified, some bare trees here and there and the contrasting background with the highest sand dunes in the world, alternating continuous play of light and reddish shadows. The arid and hostile climate has shaped this piece of Africa into a unique place in the world. For its nature, still authentic and uncontaminated, it seems that time has stopped in the prehistoric era. A shy stream tries to make its way through the desert to merge again with the sandy plain, and it is here that birds and rare specimens of animals can be seen, it is the area of the Tsauchab River.

Between safaris, you can not miss Graffiti and rock paintings on the rocks of the valley of Twyfelfontein

presumably dating back to the Stone Age, following the paths and traces of the ancient Bushmen who populated these lands. The most popular tourist attractions are the national parks of Etosha, Namib, Mudumu and Fish River Canyon.


Namibia's climate varies from desert to subtropical. The seasons are reversed compared to ours, and the hottest and most humid period occurs during our winter, when the rains, which are rarely of great intensity, also fall. In the coastal area of the Namib Desert the climate is desert with little rain

, but temperatures are never excessive, neither in maximum nor minimum values, thanks to the oceanic current.

Inland temperatures begin to rise

during the day and in the summer season (December-March) when even the heaviest rains fall, especially between January and February. During the night, temperatures drop sharply, especially during the winter months between June and September, when they can even be below freezing. The wettest area of Namibia is the north of the country where the Etosha National Park is located. The average temperatures and rainfall contained in the following tables will give you an even clearer idea of the climatic situation.
