Consulate General of the Republic of Rwanda in Australia

Which month is the best season to travel in Rwanda?

It depends on what activities you plan on carrying out whilst in Rwanda. The long dry season, from June to September is the best time for tracking gorillas in the Volcanoes Park and hiking in Nyungwe Forest, as the ground is dry. Whereas the wet season, February – June (and a shorter season September-December) is best for tracking chimps in Nyungwe and the scenery is greener in addition the sky is less hazy.
The average temperature in Rwanda is 24.6 – 27.6 °C, the hottest months being August and September.
