It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace.

When to go to Mozambique

Peak Season: May to October

Mozambique is at its best during the southern hemisphere winter, when the climate is cool and dry. Avoid August, however, when the coast fills with vacationing South Africans and hotel prices are at a premium. Airfares peak in coordination with U.S. and European summer holidays between June and August.

Off Season: mid-January to April

During the height of the rainy season, torrential downpours, high winds, and flooding (especially in the south) are common. That said, although it rains hard, it doesn’t usually rain for long. Stick to Maputo or the far north, and watch for booked-out coastal hotels during the South African Easter holidays.

Sweet Spot: November to mid-January

Temperatures are high, but in most areas the rains haven’t started and visits can be highly enjoyable. Prices are also reasonable, except for the Christmas-New Year holiday period, when high season prices apply, and advance bookings are essential.
