Nights are slightly warmer now, but we still recommend warm clothing for evenings in the desert. There is nothing like being out in the vast and remote deserts of Namibia under the stars, so you don’t want to miss it due to being cold.
May to October is widely viewed as the best time to visit Namibia, with excellent wildlife, clear skies and no rain. Everywhere is accessible, so you can embark on epic Namibia journeys; from Windhoek and Swakopmund, to flying safaris down the Skeleton Coast, and all the way up to the Caprivi Strip. At the Caprivi Strip, European and southern bee-eaters are still in breeding season, making this a great place to go for birders, especially those who like colourful and charismatic birds.
For those interested, this is a great time to do a dolphin cruise, with whales being present off the Namibian coast.
