Weather and climate Namibia

The area we travel through in this trip is vast and there will be regional differences in climate and weather, depending upon latitude and height above sea level. In general we can say that the day-times have a warm climate all year round, with the deserts sometimes really hot (thirty degrees +) during the months of December-February. Most rain falls during these months but there is rarely any question of long-term continuous rain. In the months of June, July and August the desert can be quite chilly at night with temperatures around 5 degrees and sometimes even frost on the ground.

Namibia is one of the driest countries in Southern Africa. During the winter (May to September) in Namibia, there is ten percent humidity and summer (October to April) from 50 to 80 percent. In their summer, average temperatures of 25-35 degrees prevail in the day and at nigh,t 0-10 degrees. As you enter higher ground inland,  the temperatures slightly lower. On the coast, the temperature differences between day and night are also less. Rainfall is scarce. On the coast there is an average of 50 mm per year, rising to 350 mm in the upper center of Namibia to 700 mm in the extreme northeast. In the southeast and south, the climate throughout the year remains dry and warm. The most rainfall in a short time in the afternoon is often found in the short rainy season in November and the long rainy season from January to March.
