WET SEASON

This is the peak of the wet season, yet days with rainfall are still very rare indeed.

Great birding with migratory species present.

Less foggy conditions.

Temperatures are pleasant, averaging 25°C/77°F midday, but can occasionally rise well above this. Night time lows average a comfortable 17°C/63°F.

Swakopmound and Walvis Bay have a desert climate, with just the very occasional rain shower during the Namibian wet season, which runs from October through to April. The rest of the year rainfall is very unlikely. It’s location between the cold Atlantic Ocean and the hot interior does however give rise to some very foggy conditions, especially through the winter/ dry season months. This is a part of Namibia which is great all year round, though we personally prefer the summer months for the warmer and less foggy conditions.
