Best Time to Go for Namibia Safari Holidays

January to April

The month of January marks the peak summer season in Namibia, when the temperatures are very hot. With the occasional bout of heavy rainfall in some parts, areas like Etosha remain verdant and lush during this month, making it great for birdwatching. February remains the hottest, wettest as well as the most humid month here, making it difficult to spot wildlife amidst all the greenery. However, you can still catch sights of new born antelope calves during this time. The summer rains begin to decline from March onwards, but the vegetation remains lush, thereby making safaris quite tricky.

May to July

The month of May comes with moderate temperatures and lush vegetation, along with clear skies, making it perfect to go on hikes at the Fish River Canyon. The temperatures in the deserts begin to drop in June, thereby making the days quite pleasant and good for enjoying game drives and safaris in Etosha. July is the best time of the year to enjoy Namibia safari holidays, since it is also the driest month, where you can see hundreds of animals at the waterholes.

August to October

August is the peak safari season in Namibia, owing to milder temperatures and the blossoming of wild spring flowers in the arid regions. The temperatures begin to warm up from September onwards, which makes it excellent for game viewing, especially around Fish River Canyon and Etosha. October gets very hot and dusty in Namibia; however, it is still a good time to visit Etosha since you can easily spot wildlife species during this month. You can also head to the Walvis Bay during October to witness southern right, humpback and minke whales as they pass through the Atlantic Ocean.

November to December

Summer rainfall arrives in November, thereby lowering the temperatures in the region. This is when you can enjoy witnessing whale migration from Walvis Bay. The region turns green and lush with the onset of December, thereby attracting many species of migratory birds and making birdwatching quite easy here.
