Safaris & Camping in Etosha Park
It’s time to get out there, explore and experience our incredible natural environment. The adventure-seekers among you might be contemplating a trip to Namibia for a camping safari and if so, you’re in luck! This article will let you know everything there is to know about this incredible place and what to expect from your visit.
Planning Your Trip To Namibia
When it comes to planning your trip to Namibia, there are a few things you need to take into account. First and foremost, you need to decide when you want to go. If your main interest is wildlife, the best time to visit Namibia is during the dry season, which runs from May to October. This is when the weather is cooler and the wildlife is easier to find.
Assuming you are coming from abroad, the best way to get to Namibia is by flying into Hosea Kutako International Airport near the capital city of Windhoek. There are several carriers that fly to Namibia including Eurowings, Qatar Airways and Ethiopian Airlines. You can also fly into South Africa and use regional airlines to link to Namibia.
What To Bring
When packing for your trip to Namibia, be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. The sun is very strong in this part of the world! You’ll also want to bring insect repellent, although malaria is not a concern in most of Namibia. If visiting in the winter months (May-Aug) be sure to also include lots of warm layers. It may seem crazy but you’ll be grateful for a scarf, beanie and gloves!
