Climate in Malawi
Winter is the best time to visit Malawi, coinciding with the dry season, and lasting from May to October. The dry season is the best time for game viewing and hiking, and getting around the country is easier.
June and July are the coolest months, with average daytime temperatures of 70ºF (21ºC), and colder nights, especially in the highlands. November to April is the hot, humid, rainy season, with more rain falling on the higher plateaus than around the lake, and with average temperatures reaching up to 90ºF (32ºC). Some roads may become impassable during heavy rains.
