Namibia

With some of the oldest sand dunes in the world, dramatic landscapes and majestic wildlife, Namibia is the perfect destination for those seeking an adventure-filled and action-packed holiday. The vast expanses of uninhabited desert, which encompasses both the Namib and Kalahari, are breathtaking. Rich hues of red sand provide a stark contrast against the clear blue skies; gigantic slabs of granite protrude out of the sand as if they were dropped there by accident, while riveting canyons give way to stunning rock formations and hidden coves. Whether it’s dune climbing, skydiving, sand boarding, hiking or flying, Namibia’s desert is nature’s marvellous playground.

While Namibia is known for its active pursuits, its land offers visitors plenty of opportunities for more leisurely ways to enjoy its natural beauty. The saline desert and surrounding grasslands of Etosha National Park are home to an incredible abundance of wildlife, including lions, cheetahs, black rhinoceros, ostriches, flamingos and more than 340 bird species. There are plenty of guided tours and luxury camps in the park. And for those looking to escape the dry heat of the desert, there is always the western coast where golden sands invite you to spend the days getting a tan under the glorious sunshine.

When packing for Namibia, keep in mind the temperature and climate of the different regions, as well as the different types of activities. You never truly know what you need until you get there, but try to pack as light as possible. Keep in mind that the summers tend to be hot and wet, while the winters are cool and dry. Additionally, temperatures can drop drastically in the early mornings and nights. Comfortable, lightweight clothing is great during the day. Bring light sweaters and jackets for evening. Neutral colours and moisture-wicking fabrics are ideal for safaris and outdoor adventures. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes and sandals and a bathing suit.

To prevent heat exhaustion and sunburn, bring plenty of sunscreen, hats and sunglasses and lip balm. Salt tablets, electrolyte packets and rehydrating solutions are great to keep on-hand.

Malaria is most prominent in the east, north and northeast. Therefore, anti-malarial are highly advised. Consult a physician to begin taking medication prior to venturing into those areas. Other medical items to keep nearby include first aid kits, anti-diarrhoea medication, insect repellent, pain relief, antibacterial cream and water purification tablets.

Binoculars and a camera are essential for safaris and other outdoor excursions. Keep them nearby, as you never know what you may see. Also be sure to pack a torch, pocket knife and a sleeping bag and camp gear if it is not provided by the tour guide. If you are taking self-drive tours, bring a map, GPS and emergency contact information.

With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Namibian weather is a treat for visitors. There is occasional rainfall during the summer months of November to February but the precipitation is not heavy. Typically, the riverbeds, called “riviere", are briefly filled with pockets of muddy water, during which time a thin layer of lush flora develops. Since Windhoek is at a higher elevation, the summers there are still warm, but not too hot or unbearable. Visitors should avoid the Namib and north-eastern regions during the summer, because temperatures can reach a scorching 40°C. During the hot summer months, Namibians holiday in the coastal towns where temperatures are slightly cooler and there is a pleasant sea breeze and light layer of fog.

During high travel season (April to October), the average day is sunny with blue skies and temperatures averaging 25°C. The nights tend to be cool and dry. The winter (July to September) is very dry, with temperatures around 20°C. In some areas, night-time temperatures can drop below freezing.
