Namibia Weather in March

March is coming towards the end of the wet season, and the heat is slightly reduced compared to February. However, it is still hot and humid, with high chances of rain, meaning there is still a lot of water around for the animals. Similar to January and February, this results in wildlife being trickier to find, as water is more readily available in more areas. Combined with more vegetation, this can mean they are hard to spot, even when you are close by.

March is usually when landscapes are at their greenest, giving you a really unique look at Namibia and its desert landscapes. 

It is also common to see some new-born animals, absolutely fascinating for travellers who are interested.

Namibia safaris; birding

Rains are mainly in short bursts in the afternoon, so may have little, or no impact on your safari. But you can expect temperatures to be quite hot, with an average day temperature of 27 degrees Centigrade.


Birding can also be excellent in March, with migratory birds present. However this is not the best time to see game in Etosha, as mentioned above, it can be harder to see it at this time.


Despite not being peak for wildlife, March can often be busy, depending on the dates for Easter. It is a popular family destination, for good reason, so families often choose the Easter Holidays as a time to escape urban life and embark on a Namibia adventure.


March is not the best time in regards to seeing wildlife in Etosha, but it can be a great time to travel for birds, unique landscapes, and good prices.
