The weather in Mozambique

Mozambique is a scenic country in southeastern Africa with a long Indian Ocean coastline. Mozambique has a tropical climate with two distinct seasons, making it the perfect destination for a beach break after or before a safari.

Mozambique experiences hot, wet weather from November to April and a cooler, dry season from May to October. However, the coast line in the North of Mozambique is closer to the equator, so experiences more consistent temperatures throughout the year. The roads in wet season (November to April) can be impacted and a 4x4 vehicle can be essential.
