A visit to Namibia’s natural wonders will overwhelm the senses.

Top of the list of attractions is Etosha National Park which boasts an impressive 114 mammal species. There are endless opportunities to also observe animals like desert elephants, lions, springbok and oryx in Namib-Naukluft National Park, Waterberg National Park and Skeleton Coast National Park. Steeped in history with a variety of sites, a Namibia vacation will attract the most ardent culture vultures. These include the legendary ghost towns of Lüderitz and Kolmanskop that have been claimed by sand, Twyfelfontein in the Kunene region and Spitzkoppe, a mountain range dating back more than 700 million years.
Your safari to Namibia can be planned for any time of the year as this scenic African country offers ample opportunity for exploration and discovery, depending on the preferred interests and activities. Namibia’s vast expanse is evident in the country’s different climate zones. Coastal regions like the Skeleton Coast and Swakopmund may be cloudy in the morning while deeper inland the Namib Desert experiences less than 1 cm of rain annually.
Dry season in Namibia
Namibia safaris is best experienced in the cooler and drier months of May to October. Wildlife and bird viewing are excellent as the animals are easy to spot when they gather around water holes. Daytime temperatures in Namibia during this time are pleasant but remember to pack extra layers for nighttime as it tends to be a lot cooler when the sun goes down.
Summer in Namibia
If you are planning to discover Namibia in the hot summer months between November and April, be prepared for hot and humid temperatures with thunderstorms in the afternoon. This is however also the time when a Namibia wildlife safari can deliver exceptional experiences, especially in a natural wilderness like Etosha National Park.

The best of Namibia is further on display in the myriad of newborn animals making an appearance.
