Voted as one of the most unique locations to go on safari in Africa, Namibia located Northwest of South Africa and offers unique landscapes along with wildlife like no other place on Earth. This sandy wilderness is home to one of the most interesting national parks that Africa has to offer named Etosha National Park. This park provides a fascinating white landscape where Ghost Elephants roam the edges of the salt pan, and holds magnificent waterholes that bring large congregations of animals, perfect for wildlife photography. Outside of the national parks, this country holds stunning golden deserts, desert mountains along with its rare desert adapted wildlife. Putting wildlife aside, Namibia is home to the Himba Tribe that brings you a unique, once in a lifetime cultural experience taking you back in time to traditional Africa.


When to visit Namibia


Best Time to Visit

Before planning your trip to Namibia, you must consider what time of year is best to go and what wildlife sighting are best for you. In Namibia, there are no extremely heavy rains but there are curtain times when the weather is comfortable and not too hot.

During the months of May to October, Namibia is at its driest bringing perfect weather for any wildlife photography holiday. During the months of July to October, the ground dries up and making large congregations of animals to gather at waterholes as water is scarce.

During the periods of November to April the rains arrive but, Namibia is one of Africa’s driest destinations so visiting the country during those months may not affect your stay. Our experts do not operate during those months as wildlife is scattered around and congregations of animals are less frequent.
