When to Visit Namibia


Discover when you should plan a trip to Namibia


Great weather, friendly people, awe-inspiring views, wildlife, deserts and mountains. It's possible to travel to Namibia throughout the year.

  • Namibia's peak season runs from July to October. This has traditionally coincided with 'winter game viewing' in Etosha.
  • Travelling outside of these times assures you better availability, lower off season rates and fewer travellers.
  • Namibia is a hot country with very little rain; the rain that does fall in the summer takes the form of short sharp thundershowers.

July to October: Namibia's Peak Travel Season

Namibia is exceptionally busy and popular between July and October. This is winter and temperatures are more moderate, nights are cool and days are warm and sunny. It's usually the most popular time to visit Namibia because the game viewing in Etosha, Damaraland and the Skeleton Coast and Caprivi is at its best. However, the lodges and hotels are full and availability is exceptionally limited. Booking well in advance is absolutely critical to the success of planning your trip at this time of year.
