When to Go?

The dry season, which lasts from May to October, is the peak time for beach bums. The ocean is placid and begs to be explored by snorkeling, scuba diving, or simply basking in the sun. And if you're a nature lover, now is the time to go on a safari in Mozambique and witness the country's spectacular wildlife in its native setting. Imagine the plains inhabited by regal elephants, lions, and antelopes.

But have your shades handy, for Mozambique throws its biggest parties throughout the months of February and March. The Marrabenta Festival and the Carnival of Maputo are just two of many exciting and colorful festivals you can attend in Mozambique. Come in for the fun, eat some wonderful Mozambique food, and dance the night away!

Well, so let's speak about the wet months of November through April. Certainly, it may start raining, but don't let it dampen your spirits! The abundant new vegetation and chirping birds make this an ideal spot for birdwatching.

Although the Niassa Reserve and other locations may be more difficult to reach during the wet season, there are still many amazing places to visit. All things considered, Mozambique is a fantastic travel option any time of year. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a beach vacation, a cultural immersion, or a wildlife safari, Mozambique offers it all. Put on your shades and get ready for a trip to the tropics you won't soon forget!
