Before you book your Vilanculos holidays, make sure you do your research into the weather in Mozambique so you don’t find yourself travelling during the wet season. The wet weather makes an appearance during the summer, when humidity is high and temperatures are typically between 22 and 32 degrees C. At this time, you’ll find that it’s often rainy during the summer, while in winter the weather is cooler but still warm – especially for those who’ve travelled from places like the UK! – with temperatures between 18 and 24 degrees C.
Peak tourist season – and the best time to go on holiday to Mozambique – is during the dry season between June and September, so bear this in mind before you book your trip of a lifetime. If you plan to travel to the region to do a spot of diving, be aware that how much fun you have will be weather dependent. February through to August is typically really rather windy, which could have an impact on the visibility of your dive.
The best time to go diving is between May and September as there are fewer storms and less wind, although whales are often spotted between June and October.
Of course, there are other attractions in Mozambique apart from diving. The country is great for bird-watching and fishing so if you love the great outdoors, you could certainly do a lot worse than a holiday in Mozambique.
Whatever you do, make sure you do your research properly before you book your trip so there are no nasty surprises when you arrive weather-wise.
