SUMMER: October - March
WINTER: April - September
April to September:
Cool and dry, a little rain is received in these months and daytime temperatures on the coast range around 24° - 27° C, while in the interior temperatures are generally cooler (around 5° C lower). You can expect around 8 hours of sunshine a day with around 60% - 70% humidity for Maputo, the further north you travel you can expect these figures to increase. Mozambique is at its best around this time.
December to March:
Hot, sticky and rainy with some cases of electrical storms usually in the afternoons, preceded by humid build-ups in the mornings. Rainfall of well over 200mm a month can be received. Temperatures generally range from 27° - 31° C while again it's less humid and cooler in the interior. The northern coastline areas tend to be hotter still, sometimes soaring into the high 30°'s C. Still a great time to visit.
Please note that most Island lodges close over February as this is generally cyclone/ hurricane season.
