What's the weather like during November in Namibia?

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. Warm evenings, hot and sunny in the day, with thunderstorms in the late afternoons and early evenings. The wildlife around waterholes is starting to get less and less as the month progresses.
