About Equatorial Guinea
Sara and John say...
The clue to the climate is in the name of the country. Expect hot and humid conditions with plenty of rain.
Temperatures are consistently high throughout much of the year - close to 30 Celsius by day, with humid nights. Coastal ares often benefit from a breeze though.
Cloudy skies prevail. But don’t be fooled - sunscreen is a ‘must’ throughout the year.
Southernmost areas of the mainland see two peaks in rainfall - from March to May and from September to November. But rainfall can occur at any time of year - mostly in the form of intense sharp downpours. The driest period is from June to August.
Further north, and on the island of Bioko, the rainfall is differently distributed, with the driest period from December to February.
Lightweight clothing with protection from rain and sun are a ‘must’ for visiting this lush, green tropical country.
