The climate of Harare (Zimbabwe)
Harare is the capital of Zimbabwe. The city was founded in 1890, its original name was Fort Salisbury. President Robert Mugabe changed the name into Harare in 1982. The city doesnít have a good reputation and attracts few tourists. Harare is centrally located in the Matabele mountainous region at an altitude of 1,500 meters above sea level. The relatively high altitude causes a pleasant moderate China climate with reasonably constant maximum temperatures all year round. Harare has a distinctly dry winter with hardly any precipitation. The dry period is followed up by a wet summer that starts at the end of October.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
