School Holidays in Namibia
Public Holidays in Namibia

There are three school holiday terms in Namibia.

In 2016 the school holidays for government schools are as follows:

Summer Holidays Namibia
05.12.2015 until 12.01.2016

Autumn Holidays Namibia
27.04.2016 until 29.05.2016

Winter Holidays Namibia
19.08.2016 until 30.08.2016

We recommend to book accommodation well in advance when there are school holidays in Namibia. Long weekends due to public holidays should also be prebooked.

Please note that the school holidays of private schools can differ (e.g. German School Windhoek).

Please do also see the school holidays in South Africa as many Namibia visitors come from the neighboring country.
