BEST TIME TO VISIT PEMBA DURING YOUR COASTAL TRAVELS IN EASTERN TANZANIA
Dependent on the seasonal month of travel, the temperatures on Pemba range from the nighttime lows of 20 C (68 F) to 25 C (77 F) to the daytime highs of 28 C (82 F) to 32 C (90 F). Since Pemba has a coastal location south of the equator, monsoon ocean breezes also help to maintain constant temperatures without any extreme climatic variability. These conditions are ideal for swimming, sunbathing, diving, snorkeling, angling and other water activities.
If you were to island tour Pemba with AfricanMecca in the wet seasons, you could experience the monsoon rains bring a renewed freshness to the air. Like the mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar, Pemba Island also has two wet seasons. The long rains initiate from March to April and May as dual peak months dusting off by June. The short rainy period is through months of November and December.
While some of the water activities are limited during the wet seasons, it does not rain all day long nor every single continuous day, and on some mornings and afternoons, the skies usually clear and the sun shines through for a few hours with an overcast rebuilding up. The warmer Kaskazi trade winds blowing from the northeast starts around November through March while, the cooler Kusi monsoon winds blow in from the southeast from July to September with little or no rain.
The best times to holiday on Pemba Island are its cool-dry seasonal months from July to October which typically sees temperate weather conditions and also the humid-hot dry seasonal months of January and February that occur around the same time as the peak winters in the northern regions of America and Europe. To escape from the harsh winters, like-minded travelers prefer to spend time in the warmer climes of Eastern Africa.
These ideal tour months see increased visitors on the island because it is also the peak time for wildlife safaris in Tanzania, and many families plan their vacations around their children’s summer school break in America and Europe.
With limited accommodations on Pemba (read more on where to stay), these increased visitors are minimal when compared to Zanzibar. The last two weeks of December are the start of the festive season and discerning travelers like to bond and spend time on vacation with family and friends. If you need further guidance about the specific climatic conditions and destination choice for islands on the Indian Ocean, you could check in with your specialist trip consultant at AfricanMecca Safaris. We can advise you of the beachfront accommodations and activities available on the island as per your requirements and preferences.
