Namibia is a perfect destination for trekking enthusiasts, as it has incredibly beautiful places to discover on foot.

It is a country with splendid climate, friendly people, stunning views, wildlife, deserts and mountains, which luckily can be enjoyed all year round.

But, what is the ideal time to travel to Namibia? Today we will find out in this post, so stay until the end of the post and take note:


The busiest and most popular season in Namibia is between July and October. It is generally the best time to travel to Namibia because animal sightings are rare in Etosha, Damaraland and the Skeleton Coast, and Caprivi.

If you travel in June, July and August, you will be in the middle of high season. The hotels will be more crowded, and the prices will be higher, in addition to being more difficult to book excursions and enjoy the landscape with some peace.

In April, May and September, there are slightly higher temperatures, and the occasional rain, but it is ideal to discover Namibia. You can find better prices, and visit the country with the least agglomeration of tourists.

The low tourist season runs from November to April, which is when the rainy season occurs. It is of course the cheapest time to visit Namibia, and it is also the one chosen by fans of bird watching.

In summary, if you have availability to go winter, it will be a better time to travel to Namibia due to less influx of tourism and much more accommodation option.
