The best time to visit Rwanda

The weather in Rwanda is marked by one short dry season, one short wet season, one long dry season, and one long wet season. Trekking and hiking to see the mountain gorillas is considered to be a year-round experience; however, the ideal time to visit would be the dry seasons between December and February and then between June and September. We must stress how important it is to book in advance in order to secure your gorilla permits! Many travellers aren’t put off by the rainy season either (March to May and in November), as that offers dramatic photo opportunities and is the optimum time for tracking chimpanzees. To help you decide the best time to visit Rwanda, take a look at our month-by-month guide to when to go below.
