Benin weather overview

The limited coastline of Benin, which borders the Gulf of Guinea, tends to be drier for most of the year than inland regions, partly because of cold sea currents. Temperatures vary from north to south. Northern districts enjoy very sunny, hot winters and cooler, very wet summers, while the south has two rainy and two dry seasons.

Hot, arid conditions predominate from November to February and again during August, while the rains come from March to July and September to October.

What to pack for Benin weather

Light clothing is appropriate, backed up with rainwear during the rainy seasons and warmer wear for chilly winter evenings.
