When to go
Namibia enjoys year-round sunshine. April to September, the Namibian winter, is the better time to go to Namibia as the temperatures are much more pleasant for travel. It can be very hot from November through March, with temperatures over 35° centigrade, especially in the south. Summer is the rainy season, though there is very little rain and the main rains usually occur in March.
Air Namibia flies six days a week from Frankfurt to Windhoek, with optional connections from London Heathrow. You can add return flights via Cape Town from just £115. Alternatively, you can fly on BA, Virgin or SAA via Johannesburg to Windhoek on any day.
