Abuja has three main weather patterns during the year, including two seasons, a warm, humid-rainy season and a very dry and hot season. Scattered between these are the North East Trade Winds, which bring dust haze mixed with very dry, cold conditions.
The rainy season runs from April to October. During this period, the days and nights are warm, with temperatures usually around 18-36°C. Although rain falls throughout these months, April is the driest and August and September are the wettest. If you do decide to book flights to Abuja during the rainy season, be prepared for high humidity.
During the dry season, from November to March, temperatures can reach the late 30’s C and the heat can be very uncomfortable at this time of year. By contrast, the nights can drop to 12 degrees. The very hot weather during the dry season deters some tourists; which means that travellers willing to embrace the extreme heat, may be able to get a good deal on a flight to Abuja and accommodation.
If you’re looking for cheap flights to Abuja then avoid festival dates, as fares and rates increase at this time, as with the Eid celebrations and Christmas holiday period.
The African city of Abuja yields hidden treasures for the adventurous traveller. The Jewel of Nigeria offers its visitors a choice of beautiful waterfalls, excellent local cuisine, decent retail outlets and sport and family entertainment. The Gurara Waterfalls are a great option during the rainy season. The capital city of Nigeria offers diverse landmarks and attractions, including the Abuja Millenium Park where one side of the park is devoted entirely to the preservation of nature and which includes the Millenium Tower and Cultural Centre and Museum, the national mosque, Aso Rock – a 400m-high monolith which was carved by the power of water, the Ecumenical Centre and National Assembly Complex.
The Wuse Market or Art and Craft Village is ideal for all things retail and a great place to find local food, drink and traditional gift items. Restaurants in Abuja offer food items from budget to higher quality, including seafood, steak, noodles, French and French-African fusion dishes. For golf enthusiasts who take flights to Abuja, there is the IBB golf course and the kids will enjoy a day trip to the National Children’s Park and Zoo. Tree lovers can spend the day at Abuja’s national arboretum or spend the day at Pedum or Jabi Lake. The Aso Rock presidential villa is another interesting option for a day trip while some visitors may simply wish to picnic in the park and enjoy an unhurried African atmosphere. The Hilton Pool, Gym and Fulani Bar is a nice stop off point at the end of a day of sightseeing.
Taxis are the best way to get around the city although it might be a good idea to carry a map just in case as taxi drivers might not be familiar with all parts of Abuja.
