 Where to go in August




Many countries have a pleasant climate (mild temperatures, low rainfall or dry weather) in August. Some countries are to be avoided due to unfavorable weather conditions (high or low temperatures, heavy rainfall or cyclones which often cause heavy damage).


  Africa  
Rainfall is very low or nonexistent (dry season) in the countries and the islands (Madagascar, Mauritius, Mayotte, Reunion) located south of the Equator in August. Temperatures are higher in the central African countries than in the countries located in the south of the African continent. The rains fall in the south of Chad, in the south of Sudan and in the mountains located in the center of Ethiopia. The North African countries (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt) have a warm and dry climate in August (temperatures are higher in the desert areas than on the coasts). The island of Madeira and the Canary Islands (located in the Atlantic Ocean) have a milder climate. The climate is hot and rainy on the coasts of West African countries (rainfall is lower far away from the sea).
