Etosha Nationalpark Information: Travelling Times

Monthly Travel recommendation of The Etosha park.

January, February, March:
These months are typical of rains in the afternoons and animals are giving birth during this season. Animals don’t tend to have to go top watering holes as there is random water all over the park.

April – May:
It is a healthy raining season then the last rains will still fall in April. Sightings along the watering holes are less as the park as natural water scattered all over. April can be exciting as the Springboks and impalas can have a second birth after November rains. Their gestation period is only four months and generally during April, and early maybe one can still see offsprings being born.

June – July – August. 
This time is typical winter months, and the park will start to dry up on the naturally scattered water. Winter is when the animals start heading back towards the watering holes. The mornings and the evenings are cold, and sometimes the best sightings are in the middle of the day when it warms up.

Sept – Nov
Spring is rated for the best months of animal sightings as it warms up and the park is arid. Animals tend to gather around the watering holes, and many of the predators have youngins to feed during these times. If the rains are early in November, it is not uncommon to have first offsprings with the impalas and Springboks.

Dec – Jan:
The rains are falling, and the park is starting to show life as the grass turns green. There is an excitement amongst the animals as more grazing is available. The herds are coming together, and these are the times for large crowds and contrast with the backgrounds.

It is not uncommon to see flocks of migrating birds during these times as the rains bring food and the pan regularly fills towards the eastern part near Onkoshi and Namutoni. Allows for possible flamingo’s on their way towards makgadikgadi pans to breed.

Etosha Nationalpark Information: Malaria

Etosha National Park is a low-risk Malaria Region. There have been isolated cases of Malaria in the park, and these only were recorded during the Raining season and people that came from the North of Namibia. As a precautionary matter, we do suggest that you consult your GP on Malaria Prophylaxis when visiting Etosha during Jan – April. The winter temperatures and dry season are not suitable for the mosquitos and in general, there is a high low risk during June – Dec. Most travellers will make use of Malarone tablets.

Etosha is a low-risk Malaria region.
