Peak ( Sep - Oct )

The perfect conditions for game watching, coupled by picture-postcard-perfect days, low humidity and clear skies. The dry weather peaks in October, making large groups of animals congregate around disappearing waterholes.

Shoulder ( Apr - Aug )

The end of the humid rainy season, and the start of winter, which gradually progresses and peaks in July and August. Waterholes are still dry enough to attract game. In the peak winter months of July and August, the temperatures can drop to freezing in the desert, especially at night. Bundle up well on all game drives during this period; even days can drop as low as 13 C.

Low ( Nov - Mar )

The start of the rainy season sees a spike in temperatures and humidity which worsen as the season progresses. The excessive rains through December – February make game viewing slim, because of abundance of water. However, it is the best time for bird watching in the Caprivi Strip, and Swakopmund sees a profusion of flamingos. If you can only travel at this time, these are your best bets.
