Travel Guide Africa Mozambique Tete



Tete is a small city with a population of 150,000 and it serves as the capital of the Tete Province of Mozambique. Being an important trading point for the Swahili before the colonial era, it is located on the Zambezi River.




Tete enjoys a tropical climate with generally warm to hot and humid weather. There are two seasons, a dry and cool season from April to October and a warm and wet season from November to March. Temperatures usually vary from around 25 °C during the day from June to September and around 30 °C from December to March, at night dropping to around 23 °C and 17 °C respectively. Highest rainfalls are recorded from January to March and these are probably the months to avoid if you can, because hurricanes can strike.
