Best Time To Travel To Mozambique

We recommend visiting Mozambique anytime during the dry season. The best weather for sightseeing is from May to September with generally sunny days. Take a visit to Ilha de Mozambique, Ibo Island, or one of the archipelagoes for some history, sun, and island life. From June to November keep your eye out for the humpback whale migration and from November to March witness turtles lying thousands of eggs along the beaches. You will find the best weather for diving is from April to June and September to November when the waters are at their calmest, and the best time for game safaris from June to October.

  • Dry Season: April to December
  • Rainy Season: January to March
