When to travel

jan feb mar apr may jun jul aug sep oct nov dec

For most people, the dry (winter) season is most attractive (i.e. April/May to October/November). The chance of rain is slim, daytime temperatures are generally pleasant (in the 20s Celsius), and the low vegetation and limited availability of water mean that game viewing is at its best. However, some of the best bird watching can be had from November to April, and the orchids of Nyika are best seen from December to March/April.

Malawi’s temperatures are moderated by altitude. In the hottest month (usually November) maximum temperatures will be around 30°C. In the coldest month (probably July) maximum temperatures will be in the low 20’s. On the uplands (e.g. Zomba, Nyika and Viphya) it can be quite cold at night. The hottest area, all year, is that at the lowest altitude – the Lower Shire Valley. Rainfall is scarce in the dry season, and even in the so-called wet season, the rains are usually short-lived storms, as is typical of the tropics, and at no time does the climate severely inhibit the traveller. Around the country, rainfall varies, with the highlands causing the highest figures.

Add on’s
