Malawi in October

October

October is the driest month in Malawi and the temperatures are still rising, along with the humidity.

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

  • Both days and nights are hot, and warming up throughout the month
  • October is the last month of dry season
  • Temperatures are almost at their highest all year
  • Comfy cool layers are essential.

What are the highlights of visiting Malawi in October?

  • All lake lodges are open
  • Rates are on their way down
  • It’s very rare to come across mosquitoes
  • There’s a lot to enjoy on and around Lake Malawi – sunbathing, diving, snorkelling, kayaking, and more
  • If you visit Zambia as part of a bush-and-beach holiday before or after coming to the lake, you’ll experience first-class wildlife viewing, as the paucity of water sources results in animals clustering around the few remaining waterholes.

Any lowlights?

  • It’s getting pretty hot – perhaps too hot for some travellers
  • The humidity is increasing too.
