The winter is not frigid, although it is usually colder in the mornings and nights. Temperatures in the interior may reach 40 °C (104 °F) in January and February.

The best time to visit
You may visit Namibia at any time of year since it is generally dry and warm. Between December and March, there may be days with high humidity and a possibility of rain, mainly in the form of afternoon thunderstorms. At this time of year, the colors are at their most vivid.
The most fantastic time to see wildlife is during the dry season, which lasts from May to October. The animals abandon the waterholes during the rainy season.
Despite its dry climate, Namibia has one of the world’s most diverse animal populations. Namibia is home to 676 bird species, 90 of which are Southern African (13 are Namibian). It also has 217 mammal species, with 26 of them being endemic. Moreover, Namibia hosts The «Big Five» (lion, elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo, and leopard) and is home to Africa’s largest free-roaming black rhino population and the world’s largest cheetah population. In addition, it has a unique population of elephants adapted to the desert environment. They are primarily found in the country’s northwest and can go days without drinking water by surviving on moisture acquired from the flora they eat.
