What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Oct through Feb is bloody hot, but it's dry heat. June, July, Aug nights can be chilly. - Jan 2021

Hot and dry - desert. - Jan 2016

Weather is dry, but very good with 300+ days of sunshine a year. - Jun 2015

The weather pattern is dry-and-hot, dry-and-REALLY-hot, about two afternoons of rain, and dry-and-coolish. The embassy provides humidifiers for the bedrooms, but ours have done nothing but leak, even after having them all replaced twice. We just stopped asking. Pack a ton of hand and body lotion---you'll go through it all here. - May 2013

Mostly dry. There is a rainy season but it is not constant. Usually it rains hard then dries up quickly. Summer is hot (in the 40s C./100s F.) and winter gets down to freezing overnight. Keep in mind Windhoek is south of the equator so seasons are opposite from northern hemisphere. - Jan 2013

Warm/hot most of the year. Winter is about 75 during the day but gets below freezing at night. Rainy season is Dec-Mar, but still hot. Perfect weather!!!! The sun shines every day. - Jul 2012
