Mozambique in June

Safari Enquiry

June marks the start of Mozambique’s cooler, drier winter season, sprinkled with bright, hot days that can still climb over 30°C/86°F. Average highs in the south are closer to 26°C/79°F, however, and nights are far less humid, making it easier to sleep.

Throughout the year, the south of Mozambique is cooler and drier than the north. By June, even the north has very little chance of rain. You can expect clear, blues skies and the occasional wisp of cloud all along Mozambique’s coast.

Inland the skies will also be clear, and it can get relatively cold in the highlands, where night-time temperatures can drop below 10°C/50°F.

June is a great time to start thinking about the far north. Pemba, Mozambique Island and the Quirimbas are at their best from June to October. The bright warm days are perfect for spending time on the beach, although September and October will be hotter if you’re after a serious tan.

As you head south, the great beach weather continues – it’s prime time all along the coast from Vilanculo and Tofo to Ponta do Ouro. As ever, these resorts are influenced by the South Africa school holidays and tend to get busier when the winter break begins in late June.

With its handful of luxury resorts the Bazaruto Archipelago is less affected. June is an excellent time to visit these islands, as humpback whales return.

Travel Tips
  • June is the start of humpback whale season, especially along Mozambique’s southern coast. Conditions are often calm and clear and it’s a wonderful time to interact with these giants. In the Quirimbas Archipelago, Ibo Island hosts its Kueto Siriwala festival. The festival (which means ‘don’t forget your roots’), begins on 23 June and song, dance, food and dhow racing takes over the island for a fun-filled three days.
  • There are few disadvantages of visiting Mozambique in June. It is the start of peak season, however, so it’s safest to book limited-space activities (such as whale watching boat tours) in advance.
