When To Go To Rwanda
Rwanda lies between the Congo Basin and the Great Rift Valley and its biodiversity is unsurpassed in Africa. The number one thing to do in Rwanda is definitely gorilla and chimpanzee trekking, so here we've put together a guide with the best time for this.
The Dry Seasons - December to February and June to September
The weather is generally good, with temperatures going up to 29 degrees Celsius during the day.
This is also the best time for gorilla tours since there is a minimal chance of rain during the trek.
We still suggest your waterproof clothing even during these drier months, as this Equatorial climate is very unpredictable.
The Wet Seasons - March to May and October to November
In Rwanda, there are two rainy seasons, the first from January to April and the second from October to mid-December. In between the two rainy seasons is a short dry season characterized mostly by sunshine and some light clouds.
The rainy season is characterised by frequent showers, but this is the best time to go to Rwanda for chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe, as food is easy to find and chimps are easy to locate.
