January is one of the hottest months in Namibia. The mornings are windless, dry and hot from early. You can expect thunderstorms in the afternoons.
February is the wettest month of the year in Namibia. There is plenty to enjoy, especially if you plan on visiting the drier areas such as Sossusvlei, the Fish River Canyon, and the Skeleton Coast.
September is still a dry month in Namibia. The days are getting warmer, and the nights are not as cold as in August. Wildlife is still excellent, and the lodges are still filled to capacity.
October is the end of the dry months. There is still an abundance of wildlife at the waterholes across Etosha National Park and the neighbouring private game reserves.
November is the start of the shoulder season. Tourists are getting fewer; it is a great time to visit Damaraland for some elephant and rhino tracking. Expect changing weather conditions.
December is the start of the wet season. It is excellent for bird viewing in the Zambezi region. Game viewing is not significant during December.
