May is a great time for exploring the Kalahari, whilst it is still green, and is also a wonderful time to get over to the coast. The Skeleton Coast gives a really unique perspective on wild Namibia and is worth visiting. A balloon safari is a great choice in May, with the surreal greens and oranges of the desert contrasting each other so beautifully. If the rainfall in previous months has been particularly high, you can expect plains of golden grass stretching into the horizon.
In May, rain is unlikely, the weather is warm, and the days short. Low season rates still apply, and a majority of parks can be nice and empty. Wildlife sightings are improving as the land dries out, and every part of the country is accessible. All in all, we say this is an excellent time to go to Namibia, in fact, it one of our favourite months to travel.
