Seasons
Namibia and Botswana are in the southern hemisphere which means the seasons are the opposite to ours; in our summer months it’s winter in Namibia, and when we’re wrapped up in hats and gloves you can enjoy the summer sunshine there.

Namibian summer
The summer months in Namibia are warm and sunny. In December and January temperatures average between 20-35C.

Namibian winter
The coldest months in Namibia are June and July when daytime temperatures can drop to 0C. At night it gets even chillier with temperatures below freezing. If you’re planning on going camping at this time of year make sure you have good camping equipment and most importantly, a warm sleeping bag.

Spotting wildlife
Your best chances of spotting wildlife are in the dry season from May – November. As water supplies in the bush dry up, the animals will gather round the drinking holes. You can observe the animals at close distance.

Peak season
Despite the cold temperatures, this is the ideal season for many travellers because the dry season coincides with the school holiday period. If you’re planning your Namibia and Botswana trip in these months we recommend booking early. Accommodation fills up fast, though camping spots are always widely available.

What to wear?
The Namibia climate has hot summers and cold winters, so pack accordingly. If you’re travelling in the Namibian summer months, light airy cotton clothing is best. Bring something with long sleeves and long trousers to protect yourself against the strong sun and insects. The winter months (June and July) can get very cold, so remember to bring a warm jumper and trousers. Don’t forget your sunglasses, it may be chilly but the sun’s still strong. You might want to pack your swimmers. The brave few may even take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean, but many of the hotels and lodges have a swimming pool. If you’re planning on a going on a bush walk, you’ll need trousers and sturdy shoes. It’s not only to keep off the insects, but also to protect against sharp branches and prickly thorns.


Namibia travel tips

There are plenty of ways to travel across Namibia during your trip: on your own by hire car, as part of a small international group by minibus, or by private 4×4. You can also combine the different transport options to suit your preferences. Below we’ve outlined several Namibia travel tips to help you pick the most suitable options.

Self drive:
Driving in your own hire car will give you the ultimate sense of freedom on your Namibia trip. You can determine your own pace and route. Driving in Namibia is a novel experience; 80% of the roads are unpaved and the distances are considerable. Although a standard hire car will do the job, it’s worth considering hiring a 4×4. It’s more comfortable and the higher seating means better views and better chances of spotting wildlife.

Suggested Namibia routes
Most travellers begin their Namibia holiday in Windhoek. You can enjoy a relaxed start with our short Windhoek trip. One of our tried and tested Namibia travel tips is to spend the first day or two acclimatising, rather than jumping straight into your hire car and driving off to your next destination. For our small group tours you’ll need to schedule a night in Windhoek. The tours leave early in the morning, too early to connect with your arriving flight that same day.

Three week route:
If you have three weeks for your Namibia trip, we suggest beginning and ending in Windhoek. From Windhoek you’ll travel south and then back north along the coast. At Swakopmund head east inland to Etosha National Park, from where you’ll turn south back to Windhoek. Our suggested Damaraland itinerary roughly follows this route.

Two week route:
For a shorter, two week route we suggest cutting out the southern leg to Fish River. Most of the highlights can be found in central and northern Namibia, so you can still manage a varied and comprehensive itinerary in just two weeks. Take a look at our two week suggested Namibia itinerary for inspiration.

Combining Namibia with Botswana
Namibia can easily be combined with neighbouring Botswana in one itinerary. After the red deserts of Namibia the green banks of the Okavango Delta add an interesting dimension to your trip. Botswana has an excellent infrastructure and most of the roads are tarmacced, making driving all the more comfortable. One of our Namibia travel tips is to head directly east to Botswana from Windhoek, or if you’re visiting Etosha first, to cross the border into Botswana from the Namibian Caprivi Strip. Take a look at our short Botswana adventure tours to add on to your Namibia trip.
