When to Go

  • Winter (Dec–Feb) A good season to visit but with chilly temperatures and the odd shower.
  • Spring (Mar–Apr) One of the best times to visit with temperatures around 30°C
  • Summer (May–Sep) Avoid: temperatures average around 45°C with a stifling 95% humidity.
  • Autumn (Oct–Nov) Temperatures fall leaving enough heat to remember you're in the desert but not enough to make visiting intolerable.
