Namibia is nicknamed ‘the land of endless horizons’ due to its diverse and ever-changing landscapes characterised by high rolling sand dunes of orange and red colour. The Namib Desert which the country is named after, is the oldest desert in the world and an extremely unique environment. Namibia is a mix of fantastic wildlife viewing, fascinating culture and spectacular landscapes. It is home to one third of the world’s entire cheetah population and a hotspot for black rhinos with the iconic Etosha National Park being Namibia’s top wildlife destination.
When to Visit Namibia
Find out which are the best months to visit and see Namibia at its best.
The best time to visit Namibia is in the dry season months from June to October. Wildlife viewing is at its best in all parks as the animals congregate around water points making them easier to spot.
April and May have the best weather, with moderate temperatures, little to no rainfall and lush landscape. Wildlife viewing is good as the animals begin to congregate around water holes.
October to March presents very high temperatures and can get a bit uncomfortable and wildlife is difficult to spot. However birdlife is at its best and its an excellent time to see newborn animals.
