Malawi in November

November

Hot, hot, hot! Malawi’s temperatures soar during this transitional month, which sees the return of the rains.

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

  • Both days and nights are hot, and humid too
  • November is between seasons – sometimes dry, sometimes rainy
  • It’s the hottest month in Malawi
  • We recommend packing plenty of layers and rainwear
  • This is Malawi’s most unpredictable month weather wise.

What are the highlights of visiting Malawi in November?

  • Most lake lodges are open
  • It isn’t peak season, so it’s less expensive than June, July, and August
  • The majority of lodges continue to offer a good range of activities such as diving, snorkelling, and kayaking
  • November is a transition month in Zambia too, so if you combine your lake break with time on safari you’ll likely see both dry and wet days – and look out for migrating blue wildebeest in Zambia, amidst gorgeous greenery once the rains begin.

Any lowlights?

  • This month can feel too hot for some travellers
  • It can get very humid too
  • Once the rains resume, the mosquitoes return
  • Rainy conditions don’t make for the best sunbathing
  • Many of the more remote bushcamps in Zambia close at the start of the month.
