Douala’s climate is tropical monsoon, which results in constant yearly temperatures of around 27°C and a significant amount of rainfall throughout most of the months. Visitors should expect warm and humid days, with humidity levels around about 85%.

Peak Season:

Significantly less rainfall and an increase in temperature, although only by a couple of degrees, make the months of December, January and February the most popular time to book flights to Douala. The month of December is particularly busy due to the least rain falling over the city, coupled with the festive holiday season. For the cheapest rates, avoid the school holiday peak times and festive season periods as well as local festival dates, as these usually see a notable increase in hotel rates and airfares.

Off Season:

The high rainfalls particularly during August deter local and international travellers, making this the off-peak season in the region.
