We normally have the rains which are not prolonged and not too heavy (Annual Rainfall is 450 mm). As indicated you can get extreme hot weather for a few days before the rains come. This period is normally when the Mosquitoes come out, but we are in a low risk area. Suggest you bring long sleeved shirt and trousers for the evenings; otherwise use Mosquito Spray.

Max temps are around 30 degrees Centigrade, and Min. 5 degrees (at night/dawn in peak winter). It does feel very cold early morning in the middle of the Winter, and late in the evenings. Generally no rains during the winter season and no Mosquitoes (still advisable to take precautions).
