Namibia in July


Namibia’s second dry-season month, July is wonderful for wildlife viewing – lots of species cluster around very few water sources, and lack of plant life makes for amazing visibility on vehicle and walking safaris.

What’s the weather going to be like in Namibia in July

  • Days are clear and warm, while nights and early mornings can be very cold
  • July is the second month of Namibia’s dry season
  • Daytime temperatures are comfortable, but come night it can freeze in desert regions
  • We recommend lots of snug layers, especially for night time and early morning game drives

What are the highlights of visiting Namibia in July

  • Cloudless skies and generally good visibility make for fantastic wildlife viewing
  • There are hardly any mosquitoes
  • Etosha National Park is particularly good in July, as a vast variety of wildlife clusters around the park’s waterholes – elephant, rhino, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, ostrich, and more
  • Throughout all safari areas, scarcity of water leads to immense concentrations of wildlife at permanent water sources
  • There’s very little greenery left in parks and reserves, so it’s easy to see all the wildlife
  • Stargazing is amazing during the dry season – Namibia’s south even boasts a dark sky reserve, one of just two worldwide
  • The dramatic dunes of the Skeleton Coast and Sossusvlei provide superb photography opportunities

Any lowlights?

  • Properties fill up quickly this month, so it’s a good idea to book well in advance
  • Prices are high
  • Desert nights can be very cold
