Best Time To Travel To Malawi

We recommend visiting Malawi anytime from May to October, this when the country shows off its great weather during the dry season and opens up the door for plenty of sights to see and activities to partake in. In Malawi, you can visit plenty of national parks and go on a safari. There is incredible wildlife throughout the country and you may just be able to see herds of elephants, mating crocodiles, antelopes herding for mating season, or flocks of migratory birds heading off to or coming back home from a long flight. Enjoy opportunities for relaxation on Lake Malawi or maybe a water sport such as sailing or kayaking. Malawi may not be on everyone’s radar, but after visiting, you’ll know it was worth a visit!

  • Dry Season: May to October
  • Rainy Season: November to April, (October to February¬†
