Namibia Travel Info

Essential information on travelling & hunting in our beautiful country.

While Namibia may seem like a remote destination travel-wise, it’s actually the most tourist-friendly country in Southern Africa!

Namibia's trophy hunting season opens February 1st and closes November 30th. 

Namibia, known as the “Gem of Africa”, is a unique place for eco-tourists. Much of Namibia is as it was centuries ago. Due to this, it has a host of natural wonders and amazing places…and English is the official language!

Namibia is one of Africa's best hunting destinations for both big game and plains game. It even offers some of the best bird hunting opportunities in the world. Namibia is a very politically stable country with a very well developed infrastructure.

Namibia possesses a treasure trove of game to be hunted on pristine wilderness locations. This is a fact that has not been missed by dozens of hunters that land at Windhoek airport every day.

Namibia has some of the best plains game hunting in the world. The most famous and emblematic animal of Namibia, the Oryx, is the most popular and sought after. The following species are also found in abundance; Cape Eland, Greater Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Blesbok, Impala, Steenbok, Klipspringer, & Warthog. With 31,000 acres and access to the Caprivi Strip…you can hunt them all with us!

But hunting in Namibia is quite different than almost any country on earth, truly embracing the concept of hunting as conservation when it became the first country in the world to include environmental conservation in its constitution! To protect the country's wildlife and scenic natural beauty, several national parks and conservation areas were created, covering 14% of the country's surface area. In December 2010, Lonely Planet named Namibia the 5th best tourist destination in the world in terms of value.

Nambia's Weather

As most of Namibia is covered by desert it is unsurprising that the climate is exactly what you would expect from a desert country. Daytime temperatures are hot (extremely hot in summer) and nights are cold, some areas frequently go below freezing in winter.

Dry season - May to October - Winter

There is little to no rainfall during the entire winter and humidity is low. Wildlife will gather around waterholes and rivers when other water resources dry up.

  • May- It is the end of summer. The rains have stopped, but the scenery is still lovely and green. The nights aren't cold yet and daytime temperatures are, on average, around 24-28°C/75-82°F.
  • June- The nights are getting cold and can drop below 10°C/50°F. In desert areas, it can be freezing. Daytime temperatures are still pleasant around 20-24°C/68-75°F.
  • July & August- These are the main winter months. Be sure to pack warm clothing because morning game drives in open vehicles will be cold. The average maximum temperature is 21-25°C/70-77°F. The average minimum temperature is around 7°C/45°F, but can fall to below freezing at night in the deserts and higher areas.
  • September & October- September is a lovely month. It isn't too hot yet, but the chill in the mornings is becoming less. It is dry and the skies are clear. During October the green vegetation is fading and the heat gradually builds up.


Wet season - November to April - Summer

  • November- The heat continues to rise and by November it is very hot, but the humidity is still low, keeping it quite pleasant. On average, the daytime temperature is above 30°C/86°F, but can be a lot higher in the deserts. Clouds are starting to build up in the afternoons.
  • December- The first rains usually arrive and with it the temperature drops. The landscape changes after the first rains and everything comes to life.
  • January & February- This is midsummer. It tends to be hot and humid with maximum temperatures around 30-35°C/86-95°F with peaks of over 40°C/104°F in the desert. There may be torrential downpours in the afternoon but not every day. Mornings are usually clear.
