Inhambane’s Climate Compared to Mozambique’s Beaches & Parks
Inhambane is a coastal town in the south of Mozambique. Its warm subtropical climate is representative of most of the country. Like Inhambane, the whole coast has some rain throughout the year, although much more in the Wet season (November to April). Reserves and parks in the interior, such as Niassa Special Reserve and Limpopo National Park, tend to be totally dry during the Dry season (May to October). It is hotter and more humid on the north coast of the country than in the south. Rainfall in Gorongosa National Park is higher than in Inhambane.
