Mozambique: Climate and Health

The climate ranges from tropical to subtropical and varies in the different regions of the country, but while the inland areas are generally slightly cooler they are more humid in the rainy season than along the coast. The rainy season broadly coincides with the heat and humidity of the hot months, between November–March, though most provinces have some rain over seven to nine months of the year. The average temperature for Mozambique all year-round is 82 degrees Fahrenheit (28 degrees Celsius). Coastal temperatures during the rainy season average 88 degrees Fahrenheit (31 degrees Celsius).

Winter, from April to September, is the dry season, and it is the best time to visit the country. The average temperature in the winter for the coastal areas does not fall below 57 degrees Fahrenheit (12 degrees Celsius). The southern parts of the country are generally drier and less tropical than the north, and the temperature along the coast averages 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius).
