Areas such as Windhoek, Swakopmund and Luderitz are warm (getting hot) and dry, ideal for embarking on the activities they have on offer. A Skelton coast safari is a great choice in September, although you can enjoy them year round, same with hot air ballooning – in fact we recommend all our clients have a go at hot air ballooning as Namibia has such unique and vast landscapes.
The skies are still wonderfully clear and cloudless, so at night, the stars shine bright and often quite colourfully in the sky. For keen star gazers, September means you get the clear skies, without such cold evenings, although be aware that at any time, the evenings in desert areas can drop to very low temperatures.
The Caprivi Strip is popular at this time with southern and European bee-eaters as they come to breed, so bird watchers can find this fascinating, and bee-eaters are a lovely bright bird to get anyone interested in birding! This leads into October too.
