Zambezi Guestbook

Namibia's seasons can be broken into three main periods:
  • A cool dry season from May to October when days are cool, clear and sunny and night time temperatures often drop down to near freezing. The end of the dry season warms up dramatically and can become very uncomfortable in the Kaokoveld and Etosha. The Caprivi area is affected by floodwaters from the north between May and August as they flow into the larger Okavango water system.
  • The "little rains" from October to December are characterised by a period of high temperatures and sporadic rains.
  • January to April is the main rainy season, mid-summer can be extremely hot and violent thunderstorms accompanied by flash floods particularly in the north are not unusual (take particular heed of local warnings about weather conditions in remote areas).

The best game viewing is generally between May and October with the birdwatching season being best from November to March throughout Namibia.
