 Etosha – Caprivi

Namibia where the landscape changes around every corner and looks different from the morning to the evening. Yes there’s no doubt that Namibia has a lot to offer and anyone can experience amazing photo opportunities on a self drive, but on Classic Namibia private guided African Memory photographic safaris you’ll be driven and guided by a professional guide and photographer who will always try to get the vehicle in the best position and light to allow for great composition and photographic opportunities. I have planned our route giving us good time to get to our destinations. If camping then I’ll make most dinners, with your assistance for dinner, washing up or setting up and breaking down camp. Menu’s are worked out so all you have to do is pack, but light and come and enjoy Namibia with me.

11 day Etosha – Caprivi

All photo safaris can be extended and customized to suite your groups or individual needs.

Etosha – Caprivi 2018

Although the name has changed to Kavango. This is my favourite safari as it’s a pure wildlife photographic safari. Starting with Etosha and traveling up towards the old Caprivi visiting a number of other National Parks that offers the freedom of a self drive to be in control of how long one wants to sit with a elephant or a lion at a waterhole along the Zambezi into the wetlands. Experiencing both the wet and the dry.

Climate for Namibia

Namibia’s Climate

Namibia has a dessert climate and most of the year it is hot during the day (above 25 ° C). The average daily temperature is 88°F (31°C) and average minimum is 57°F (13.7°C).

Summer: The Rainy Season:

The rains are always welcome after the dry season filling the rivers and waterholes, resulting in the bushveld looking lush. Game viewing is sometimes a bit more difficult in the summer season because the vegetation is dense, making it bit harder to locate and observe wildlife, but then towards the end of November early December the new borns arrive which create great photographic opportunities, with the young playing or as nature has it become pray to others. Bird photography is excellent during this time as the summer migrant birds arrive.

The summer months in Kruger Park are very hot and humid with either continual rains or occasional afternoon thundershowers.

November Temperature:(+/-) 16 – 32 °C

December Temperature:(+/-) 18 – 34 °C

January to April are normally drier months with very hot days and April is autumn period and the vegetation starts changing from thick lush green bush to a slightly sparser browning bush. The temperatures start cooling down at night but daytime is still warm. Scattered thunder showers can be experienced in the afternoons.

January Temperature:(+/-) 18 – 34 °C

February Temperature:(+/-) 18 – 33 °C

March Temperature:(+/-) 18 – 33 °C

April Temperature:(+/-) 13 – 28 °C

Dry Season: Winter 

Now we are going into winter with colder temperatures at night and at dawn. The bushveld is more open allowing for better visibility. The vegetation becomes totally brown, the grass is low and trees start losing leaves and visibility during game drives is enhanced due to sparser vegetation due to no rain and we are starting to focus more on wildlife photography. The wildlife will migrate towards the water. Water holes, dams and rivers become a hive of activity and you are more likely to spot wildlife in the morning and evening as they come for a drink of water. The day temperatures in winter are pleasant but it can get quite chilly during the night-time so make sure you pack something warm when going on your afternoon/night photo drives.

May Temperature:(+/-) 13 – 28 °C

June Temperature:(+/-) 9 – 26 °C

July to October is the end of the dry season and the malaria-carrying mosquitoes are dormant, but the best time for wildlife photography.

July Temperature:(+/-) 9 – 26 °C

August Temperature:(+/-) 12 -28 °C

Spring is the height of the dry season with hot dry winds and colorless, sparse vegetation. Because the rivers and dams are low, high concentrations of game can be viewed at these areas and game viewing in general is good. The first rains may start towards the end of October and the signs of spring and a new wet season are evident.

September Temperature:(+/-) 12 – 28 °C

October Temperature:(+/-) 16 – 32 °C
