Below Average Rainy Season

Namibia has the least rainfall of all sub-Saharan African countries. The country receives an average of 14.6 inches of precipitation annually or 1.2 inches each month. However the last summer season from September 2012 to May 2013 was the driest in 25 years, with more than 3.5 inches less than the average rainfall.
