The wildlife can still be excellent at this time of year in the Ongava Reserve, Etosha National Park and the AfriCat Foundation. Animals may still be gathering at the water sources remaining after a dry winter, it depends on the weather. Vegetation will still be rather scarce and dull, giving the animals nowhere to hide or seek shelter, so they can be quite out in the open and easy to spot.
Skies can be clear, but it’s not as guaranteed as the winter months from May to October. Often there will be clouds, meaning star gazing may not be as impressive as the winter.
Travelling in November carries certain risks, with unpredictable weather and wildlife; however it can be a really exciting time to travel, with different colours and ominous clouds often giving photos an eerie, dramatic twist! It is also a great time to see whales off the Namibian coast.
