Autumn in Namibia

Have you planned a trip to Namibia in our Autumn months? It’s well known that this is a special time to visit as the weather is becoming cooler and the country is beautifully green (if the precious rains have fallen).
Etosha is simply stunning in Autumn, with young antelope born during the rains dotting the plains, leading to some great predator action. You might even find breeding flamingos on the pan in a good rain year. Summer visitor birds get ready to leave southern Africa by the first week in April. By the end of Autumn, the elephants that have migrated to follow the summer rains in Angola start returning to the park.
Up north-east in the Zambezi region, lots of rain falls well into April. Standing water makes secondary roads waterlogged and gives rise to the possibility of contracting malaria, but the risk is worth it for the sheer magic you’ll find – green savannas, sparkling summer birds and leaves on the otherwise bare trees.
Down south you could be treated to rolling swathes of grasslands that stretch out to the horizon and again a sense of relaxation and well-being.
Remember the time change on the first Sunday in April!
