Nigeria experiences typical African weather throughout most of the year – a hot and humid climate that peaks in the spring.

The annual average temperature in the country is at 26.4 °C (80 °F). The average maximum temperature is usually highest in February and March, at 33 °C (91 °F). The lowest average minimum temperature, on the other hand, occurs in August, at 21 °C (70 °F).

In southern Nigeria, the wettest months are from March to August. It is generally not advisable to travel to the country during this time because your vacation will be continually interrupted by the rain.

Timing your trip to Nigeria in tune with local festivals would be difficult, as most of their festivals have no definitive schedules. However, the Argungu fishing festival, which is celebrated roughly every February or March, might catch the interest of tourists who love fishing.
