  MAP & WEATHER

Weather
Most of the Southern African region is either tropical or sub-tropical. Seasons are reversed, with spring and summer from September to February, and autumn and winter from March to August. Days in the summer are warm to hot (but humidity is, for the most part, low), with balmy evenings. Early winter mornings are cold and crisp, with the temperature rising through the course of the day; as the sun sets, the temperature falls again, making for cool, clear nights.

NAMIBIA - AUGUST
The dry winter season (May to October) is the most pleasant time to visit Namibia. It is very sparsely populated and most of it is desert or semi-desert.

Temperatures are relatively low between 55-66 ° F most of the time due to the cold Benguela current. On a few days each month, particularly in winter, midday temperatures rise quite high when the berg wind blows from the interior. The interior is marked by low rainfall as well, and much of it is semi-desert or desert. The interior receives some scanty but unreliable summer rain that increases eastwards and northwards. Like most interior deserts Namibia's has a very sunny climate.
