The Best Time to Visit Mozambique

Mozambique has two distinct seasons, with the dry winter season occurring from May to November and the rainy summer season from December to April.

The dry season features cooler temperatures (though it rarely dips below the low 20s) with less rain. This makes it the ideal time to visit the archipelagos of Quirimbas and Bazaruto, their beaches looking their resplendent best. Head to Mozambique in the second half of the season and you’ll catch pods of humpback whales migrating from Antarctica (July to October). If you’re going on a safari holiday on the mainland, August, September and October are great months as the vegetation has thinned out towards the end of the dry season and the wildlife are drawn to watering holes.

The wet summer season brings higher temperatures and humidity, as well as stronger downpours, but it’s still a good time to visit. The months of January and February do see cyclones so it may be worth avoiding these months.
