Why you should visit Namibia

Namibia is truly one of the most sparsely populated countries earth. The other world deserted landscapes, sand-swept coastline, dunes, and vast canyon are a new and awesome experience for the traveler.


In the north, the country transforms into wetlands and rivers in the Caprivi Strip, and the famed EtoshaNational Park is one of the elite wildlife-watching destinations in the world.


There are so many reasons to visit and enjoy Namibia and its world of possibilities and adventures, as you will see in this section. Our team at Asante offer you just a taste of first-hand knowledge of what is available and is happy to guide and help you plan your Namibian wonder trip.

When is the best time to visit

Namibia has two seasons, the rainy season, known as austral summer from November to April, and the dry season, austral winter from May to October. Although any time of the year is a good time to visit, most visitors enjoy the months from April to October when the weather is a little cooler.


Inland, the average daytime temperature is 20degrees Celsius. It hardly ever rains, so uninterrupted sunshine can be enjoyed without the extreme heat. However, temperatures can be close to freezing at night, so warm clothing is a necessity, particularly for campers.


This is also an ideal time for game viewing as the vegetation is becoming scarce and drying out, causing animals to seek permanent water holes. Layered clothing (long-sleeved t-shirts, jerseys and jackets) is recommended for early morning and night game drives, when one may put on or peel off layers to remain at a comfortable temperature. At this time of the year.

What to pack for your trip to Namibia?


A lightweight and loose-fitting selection of linen or cotton clothes will help to keep you cool in the extreme heat and are easy to wash and dry. It is interesting to note that blue clothing seems to attract the pesky tsetse fly, carrier of African Sleeping Sickness, so it’s wise to stick to other light coloured garments. Long-sleeved shirts and long pants will protect you against evening mosquitoes.


In general, Namibians are relaxed about dress code, so for a formal occasion or workwear, long trousers and a buttoned shirt are quite adequate. A tie and jacket are very seldom worn. Alternatively, jeans, t-shirt, and sensible shoes are recommended
