Best Time To Visit – Mozambique
The best time to visit Mozambique is between April and November. Mozambique is mostly visited as a beach destination. The coastal resorts can be visited throughout the year, but December, January and February tend to be very wet, which might spoil a beach holiday. Diving and snorkeling are best from April to June and September to November. During these months the water is clear and calm, and visibility is very good.
Wildlife viewing is best from the middle to the end of the Dry season, from July to October. At this time the bush has thinned out and animals gather around the few remaining water sources.

Best Time To Go by Major Park
The best time to visit Gorongosa, Limpopo and Zinave National Parks is during the middle and end of the Dry season, from July to October. This is when water is scarce and animals gather around predictable water sources. The bush is also thinner at this time, which makes animals easier to spot. May, June and November are also fine.
Maputo National Park and the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos are mostly beach destinations. The main activities are snorkeling, diving and ocean safaris. These parks can be visited throughout the year, although the wettest months of December, January and February are best avoided. The best time for water activities is from April to June and September to November when the sea tends to be very clear, giving great visibility.
