When to Go
The best time to visit is from April to September, when the temperatures are cooler, and the increasingly thirsty animals gather at water holes, making it easiest to see them (the driest time of year when this will be the case is August to September). May to August is the coolest time of year, and nights can be downright freezing—be sure to bring adequate warm clothes for night drives. Bird-watchers will want to visit in the summer (November to March) when the migratory birds (both intra-African and Palaearctic) flock in the park's many habitats after the summer rains. The main Etosha Pan can become a huge expanse of shallow water filled with flamingos, wildfowl, and waders.
