Salalah’s moderate season, when the weather is most pleasant, is between October and February. The monsoon season (Khareef) begins around June and lasts until August. During this time Salalah transforms into a stunning oasis in the cool air. If you happen to visit over this period you may even get to join in some of the Salalah Tourism Festival activities, welcoming the monsoon. If you’d prefer to avoid the rain, plan your visit for between September and February – a great time of year for wildlife spotting.
