September weather & where to go
September is still the dry, winter season in Namibia, and similar to July and August, you can expect little to no rain. Temperatures are starting to warm up however, as we come closer to the summer, with days averaging at 29 degrees centigrade across the country. For those who want excellent wildlife and don’t mind the heat (or indeed are looking for a hot holiday), September is a great time to travel.
Wildlife is still congregating, often in large numbers, in the wildlife parks of Etosha and the Ongava Reserve as there is very little water, and getting hot. Etosha is often busy at the start of the month due to the holidays ending in Europe, but towards the end will be a bit quieter. Although as Namibia is not a hugely busy destinations for tourists, so don’t expect huge crowds at any time of the year – especially not enough to put you off.
We know some great lodges in quieter areas that give you early or late access to the some of the parks and attractions, which can be a big bonus at this time of year.
