Travel Tips for Namibia
Dominated by the desert, Namibia’s climate is arid. Winter is the dry season and lasts from May to October; temperatures range from the 80s during the day to freezing at night. Summer is the wet season, and temperatures are often in the 90s or 100s. The dry season in particular is an optimal time to spot wildlife as animals congregate around watering holes during this time of the year.
The Windhoek Karneval is a popular festival in April with costumes, musical performances, and dancing.

Barbecue, or braaivleis, is a favorite method of cooking in Namibia with savanna-raised beef, ostrich, and native springbok being just some of the menu options. A meat-based stew, known as potjiekos, is also popular. German influence in the country resulted in the availability of tortes and other baked goods. A mid-range meal for two will cost around $30.
