GREEN SEASON TRAVEL IN NAMIBIA

Summer has arrived in Namibia and we have some wonderful specials for the “Green Season” between mid-January and the end of March 2020. The Green Season has traditionally been considered the least popular season to visit Namibia, although this is something of a mystery as the same time of year is considered ‘peak’ season in neighbouring South Africa. In the past, very few Namibian lodges have offered special rates for the Green Season, but this has changed. As a result, we have been able to create packages that offer up to 40% cost savings when travelling during the Green Season compared with  peak season later in the year.

REASONS TO TRAVEL TO NAMIBIA IN GREEN SEASON

1. Winter Sun

Escape the damp and dismal northern hemisphere winters, and enjoy warm sunny summer days with average min/max temperatures of 17/29ºC. It is the best time from a weather perspective to explore Namibia’s Skeleton Coast.

2. Avoid the Crowds

Avoid high season and ensure you get the true feeling of Namibian peace and solitude.

3. Season of Bounty

Experience the ‘season of bounty’, with a green and flowering desert when all forms of life look strong and healthy. When and if it rains, enjoy short spectacular afternoon thundershowers which only last an hour or so. This is great to watch and rarely causes any great inconvenience. Enjoy the cloud cover which diffuses the otherwise harsh light conditions and makes the country look truly benevolent, especially when there is also some grass after the early rains.

4. Wildlife & Photography

Observe the calving season for most antelope species and the resulting heightened activity among predators. Look out for spectacular birding opportunities with many migratory species flocking in to enjoy this time of warmth and abundance. Look out for antelope species which also tend to congregate in larger herds at this time of the year, allowing for great wildlife photography. Breathe the air which is crisp and clean as the rain has generally cleared the dust in the air, allowing for great landscape photography.

5. Culture

Share the excitement and enjoyment of the Namibian people when they welcome the rains that ensure future good grazing as well as plentiful wild fruit and other natural treasures.

 

We have put together a variety of packages which include self-drives, family safaris, private guided journeys, flying safaris and combination safaris, where the focus is on offering select destinations that are especially exciting to visit during the Green Season, without compromising on the quality of the experience on offer or missing out on the most popular highlights.
