June weather & where to go
Winter draws in, yet the weather is still lovely and warm, although the nights are getting colder – it’s definitely time to get the jumper out! Namibia is really starting to dry out now, and the wildlife sightings are excellent in Etosha, as well as the other parks. Water holes are now scarcer, and you’ll see wildlife gathering together with the common goal of hydration around them. Vegetation is drying out as well, giving the animals fewer places to seek shade or shelter.
Parks are still relatively quiet at the start of the month, but they do get busier towards the end due to the start of the South African school holidays.
We recommend June for those who want to avoid crowds and hot weather, but are aiming to see a lot of wildlife.
