Malawi in December


The first month of green season, December sees plenty of rain and the beginning of low season – many of Malawi’s lake lodges are now closed.

What's the weather going to be like in Malawi in December?

  • It’s hot during the day and at night too
  • December is the first month of green season
  • There’s very little respite from the heat
  • Cool layers are a must, under sturdy rainwear.

What are the highlights of visiting Malawi in December?

  • Where lake lodges stay open, there’s good availability
  • Rates are relatively low
  • It’s a thrilling month for crocodile viewing, with each mother croc helping her babies to hatch before carrying them to the edge of Lake Malawi in her mouth, in readiness for life in the water
  • Combine Lake Malawi and Zambia, and you’ll enjoy particularly gorgeous green scenery and great birding in the latter destination.

Any lowlights?

  • Some lake lodges close
  • Many of the more remote Zambian bushcamps are closed
  • There are lots of mosquitoes
  • The onset of rains sees an end to sunbathing season.
