If you’re asking us, well our answer is… always! We know why you simply have to travel to Namibia and what you’re missing if you never do. The best time totravel really depends on your reason for travel and your interests, but in general Namibia is in effect, an all year round destination. Yes, we do have a rainy season but being mostly desert, rain is sporadic with heavy rainfall only really experienced in the north and north-east of the country (usually from December through April). The dry season (May-November) is better for viewing wildlife as animals congregate at waterholes and the bush is less dense. The rest of the year is great for scenery, bird watching and general photography as well as wildlife sightings. It’s hot in the summer (December to February) and cooler the rest of the year. Either way, you just have to experience it, so be sure to pack a hat, sunblock and a warm jacket and don’t forget your camera.
