The best time to visit Malawi

Malawi has a varied geography and climate – the lowlands can be hot and humid and the mountains can be cool and misty in any month of the year.

The most popular months for travel are when temperatures are coolest and the lake is at its calmest, between April and November. There is little rainfall throughout the year near the lakeshore – the majority falls in the more mountainous regions between December and March.
