    Africa weather December

    What’s the weather like in Africa in December?

    The Africa weather in December boasts lots of excellent sunshine and a warm climate. Temperatures vary from the north to the south of the continent and some countries, such as Kenya and The Gambia, can see tropical rains at this time.

    Geographical influences

    Resorts in the north of Africa will produce cooler temperatures and a slightly milder climate than those in the southern hemisphere. This is because southern countries will be experiencing summer in December, so it’s the perfect time to visit South Africa and soak up the sun around Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg. Choose a resort close to the coast and you’ll enjoy the cool ocean breeze.


    The average temperature across the continent of Africa in December is 18°C. Hotspots such as Sharm El Sheikh along Egypt’s Red Sea coast will be higher though, at around 22°C on average. Cape Town’s average daytime high in December is a delightful 24°C. Pack your sunglasses if you’re heading to the continent, because the weather in Africa in December has lots of sunshine. You can expect around 12 hours each day on average and the sun doesn’t set until nearly 8pm in the south of Africa. The Gambia is usually dry in December, with Mombasa getting about 63mm on average. Across the whole of Africa the average rainfall measures 78mm. Expect the humidity level to be very high, possibly higher than 80%, and the UV index will be strong so take care if you’re sunbathing.
