November is a good month to travel in as you still have the chance to benefit from warm, clear days but you can also experience some of the season’s first rainfall. If you are interested in birdwatching, November is the time of year when many species of birds will start to shed their winter feathers for brighter, breeding colours.
Through from December to March is when the rainfall is at its highest but the temperatures still remain above 30° so humidity levels are very high which can be uncomfortable. If you are to travel at this time of year, you must come prepared with mosquito repellent as well as anti-malaria medication and protective clothing to avoid the mosquitos that are abundant at this time of year.
By April, there is much less rain and even sometimes, the rainfall has stopped by April time and towards the end of April, when temperatures are high but rainfall is low and the landscapes are looking beautiful is when you have a window of opportunity to experience all of the best things about Malawi – including excellent game drives.
We hope that you have enjoyed this week’s blog and that when you are next considering a safari holiday to Malawi, you know which time of year is best for you…
