Natural disasters

During the rainy season (November to April) there is widespread flooding around river basins, especially the Zambezi. Monitor local reports and check your routes before travelling.

Coastal areas have a risk of cyclones during the rainy season. Monitor local and international weather updates from the World Meteorological Organisation.

See our Tropical cyclones page for advice about what to do if you are caught up in a storm.
