When to visit Namibia

 

Basically Namibia is a fascinating travel destination at any time of the year. However, depending on your special preferences, the following seasons for traveling to Namibia are recommended:

 

 

 

Landscape and nature (December to April): The plants begin to flower and the desert sprouts green grass. Because the animals find enough water in puddles in the bush they are not easily observed around waterholes. The rainy season starts in December and ends in April. Downpours are short and intense and temperatures are high.

 

 

 

Watching animals (May to November): During these dry months the animals congregate at waterholes in large numbers and can be observed easily. This is the best time to watch animals. During June and July and even in August temperatures usually reach 20 degrees C by day but may fall below zero degrees by night. From August onwards it becomes warmer.

 

 

 

When to travel to Caprivi (Namibia) Botswana and Zimbabwe

 

The Caprivi (Namibia), the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park (Botswana) and Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) can also be visited throughout the year. Depending upon your particular preferences the following periods are recommended:

 

 

 

Landscape and Birding (December to April): The lush, green vegetation attracts a great diversity of birds, turning these regions into a paradise for birders. With the onset of the rainy season the weather turns humid and it may rain every day.

 

 

 

 

 

Watching animals (May to November): During these dry months the animals congregate at waterholes in large numbers and can be observed easily. During June and July and even in August day temperatures usually reach 20 degrees C, but drop sharply during the night and frost may even occur. During September and October temperatures rise up to 35 degrees C by day and drop only moderately during the night.

 

 

 

 

 

Clothing

 

Traveling during June, July, August (winter)

 

 

 

A windbreaker and a pullover as well as a woolly hat are recommended for game drives in open vehicles. A pair of hiking boots and a pair of comfortable open shoes are ideal.

 

 

 

Traveling from September to May (summer)

 

 

 

Even for these warm months a windbreaker and a pullover are recommended for your stay at the coast. A pair of hiking bots and a pair of comfortable open shoes are ideal.

 

 

 

International driving license

Some car rental companies insist upon an international driving license. When crossing the borders (Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia) an international driving license is mandatory.

 

 

Malaria

Consult your physician or an institute for tropical medicine before you decide on taking prophylactic malaria medication. Prophylactic malaria medication is mostly recommended for those traveling to the more humid regions of Namibia (north and north east) and to Botswana and Zimbabwe.
