Tsau //Khaeb (formerly Sperrgebiet NP) can be visited throughout the year, but in general the best time to go is in the cooler months from May to October.

Best Time May to October (It is cooler)
High Season July to November (Lüderitz gets busy and high-season rates apply)
Low Season December to June (Low-season rates may apply)
Best Weather May to October (Cooler during the day)
Worst Weather November to February (Very hot)

May to October Dry Season – Winter

  • Cooler around midday (except for October)
  • It is cold in the early morning
  • Lüderitz, the base for exploring the park, can get busy in high season

November to April Wet Season – Summer

  • Bird watching is a big attraction, especially when migrants are present
  • Low-season rates might apply to hotels in Lüderitz from December to June
  • It can be very hot
  • If visiting both Tsau //Khaeb NP and Etosha NP; wildlife viewing in Etosha isn't that productive
