Namibia has an average of 300 sunny days a year. The rainy season is usually during the summer months (November to April). Within a few days, dry river beds turn into raging rivers and the country awakens in a lush green. The best time to visit depends on your interests and which regions you want to visit but generally April to October are ideal for exploring this country. In April and May the temperatures are around 25 degrees during the day with a blue sky stretching across the country. At night temperatures cool down. In the dry winter months (June to August), temperatures in some regions can drop below freezing, but during the day they can climb up to a sunny 20 degrees. Namibia’s summer months (November to April) can be extremely hot, so many Namibians travel to the much cooler coast. The capital, Windhoek, is also bearable during the summer months and occasionally refreshed by short downpours.
All visitors from abroad must be in possession of a passport, which must be valid for at least 6 months after end of journey and there must be at least 3 empty pages in the passport.

As these requirements may change, we ask to make sure that the 'valid' requirements are observed. Please check at passport control at the port of entry whether the validity of your residence permit is correct. It often happens that this does not correspond with your departure date (too short). Please have this sorted out immediately with passport control. Important: SWA Safaris and Safarires cannot be held responsible for documents not being in order.
At present no vaccinations are required. Malaria Prophylaxis is recommended. All persons entering Namibia may only carry medicine for their own use. This can be done by presenting an invoice. If proof cannot be provided, it might happen that the medicine will be confiscated.
