January is a great time for keen birders, and scenery can be greener, making for some beautiful photos. It is possible that the Christmas crowd will still be around, so areas such as Swakopmund can be busy, but you can still do all the activities you can imagine here.
As with most countries this large, the weather you encounter will depend on your location, as well as the time of year. Windhoek is located at quite a high altitude, to temperatures can soar here, and the Caprivi Strip is prone to more rain, so much so we recommend you avoid it completely at this time of year.
In contrast to most of the rest of the country, the coast is actually quite mild and sunny between November and February, so it is a great time for a Skeleton Coast Flying Safari.
If you choose to travel in January to Namibia, we suggest safaris that explore the coast and southern regions. The Kalahari will be hot, with occasional thunderstorms, but it is still worth exploring!
