What is the weather like in Namibia?
The climate of Namibia is typically semi-desert, with hot days and cold nights. The cold Benguela current keeps the coast cool and free from rain most of the year. In fact, Namibia has on average about 300 days of sunshine a year. The rainy season lasts from October to April, while the rest of the year is dry and cloudless.
Summer Peak and Rainy Days – Hot days with afternoon cloudiness and possible rainfall (usually short) Wild animals can disperse during this period in search of new pastures. Northern Namibia and Caprivi generally receive most of the annual rainfall.
The morning temperatures begin to fall and the nights become colder. Precipitation is limited and wildlife begins to gather more in perennial water sources.
The early part of June sees very cool mornings and evenings, occasionally even dropping below freezing, continuing through the late winter of August. The days are typically sunny and pleasant. Warm clothes are recommended for nights and dawns. Viewing animals is great in the dry winter months in some areas.
Springtime begins in September. The days are much warmer with occasional nights and cool mornings. From October, we experience very hot and sunny days with warm nights. Sporadic rainfall occurs, although larger showers are usually limited around December. Wildlife sightings vary depending on how early the rains started.
December is the hottest month of the year, averaging 35 ° C to 40 ° C in the shade. Lower temperatures occur along the coast, thanks to the ocean breeze, with little rain and haze prevailing from the end to the middle of the morning.

As long as I can remember, nature, animals, landscapes and remote peoples have always had a special place in my imagination.
Being from African descendants made me hear countless stories about that mysterious continent where animals live a wild life and where the landscapes are so vast that it never meets the horizon, it was through these stories that I knew one day my path and Africa would meet.
