    Africa weather May

    What’s the weather like in Africa in May?

    With an average temperature of 18°C across the continent, the Africa weather in May makes this a great time to explore its amazing countries and resorts. Hotspots such as Sharm El Sheikh and Banjul will be much hotter than this, although it’s the wettest month around the popular Kenyan city of Mombasa.

    Geographical influences

    Resorts along the African coastline, such as Banjul, Bakau, Algiers, Dakar and Sharm El Sheikh enjoy a cooling sea breeze. This helps to make Africa’s high humidity levels more comfortable. Because of the monsoons, Mombasa has over 200mm of tropical rain during May.


    The weather in Africa in May produces just 3mm of rainfall on average around the continent, even though tropical rains will impact on central countries. Morocco, Egypt, Algeria and The Gambia will have less than 30mm on average. The daytime high temperature will reach nearly 30°C in Mombasa and Banjul. You’ll want to bring a sunhat and shades in May because you’ll see about 11 hours of sunshine throughout the month. In Sharm El Sheikh the sun rises at 5am and sets at nearly 6.30pm for most of May, giving you lots of daylight to relax around the beaches and your hotel’s pool. The humidity level could be over 80% and the UV index is strong too, so use sunblock and carry water when you’re having fun under the sun.
