Temperatures are high in December, leading to some humidity. At night, it can still get cold, especially in the desert regions, however not as cold as the winter months from May to October.
With more water come more vegetation, and game now moves into the bush, making it trickier to spot in the national parks. But you can still get excellent sightings, so we do recommend wildlife parks at this time, including Etosha National Park, Ongava Reserve and the AfriCat Foundation.
You can still embark on a self-drive, flying safari on the Skeleton Coast, and visit Namibia’s fabulous, activity packed cities at this time. We would mention that malaria risks are higher in Caprivi Strip, this is the wettest region in Namibia – we actually think it is best avoided in January and February.
