The dry season (winter) takes place from May to October and during this time, you can expect little to no rain and clear skies throughout the day. Due to the lack of rainfall, humidity is at its lowest, making it comfortable even when temperatures reach 30°C and above. This is often seen as the best time to visit Namibia but even when the parks are at their busiest, they never feel too crowded. So this is a great time to visit, whether you’re travelling in a group, as a couple or with the whole family.
The busiest place during the dry season is Etosha National Park and this is because game viewing is best in these months; with less vegetation and lack of water, animals can be seen gathering at watering holes. A great time to travel for guaranteed sightings!
What to pack: Evenings and early mornings can get particularly chilly in the months of June, July and August so be sure to bring some warm clothing and removable layers.
