Depending on the individual tourist, the best times to visit Mozambique can be between May and late January. If you are keen for Mozambique's lower temperatures and low rainfall (dry season), then May - November is the best time period to visit. Temperatures average about 18.4° to 20°C (65° - 68°F).
If you are keen for High temperatures, then the best time period would be between November and January (wet season). Reaching as high as the late 30°, the average temperatures are approximately between 26.6°C and 29.4°C (80°F and 85°F). Extremely high rainfalls and even floodings occur between the months of February - April. So roads can be difficult, if not impossible to go through in the centre and Southern regions. So take this into consideration if you travelling around that time of the year.
