Thousands of tourists fly to Rwanda yearly for its unique charm and beguiling characteristics. One of the most lovable facts about the country is it's compact, so it's easy to explore. But there is plenty more on offer. Volcanoes National Park is the place to be for gorilla trekking and volcano hikes. Chimps and many other primates can be found in Nyungwe Forest, while savannah safaris are offered in off-the-beaten-track Akagera National Park.
Wildlife IN Rwanda
Without a doubt, the prime attraction of Rwanda’s wildlife still remains the endangered mountain gorilla.
Most people come to Rwanda for gorilla trekking, but many smaller primates can be seen as well, including habituated golden monkeys.
Rwanda has everything from five-star resorts all the way down to budget backpacker accommodation. Rwanda is not only home to the enigmatic mountain gorillas, but also Rwanda has one savannah reserve where most safari animals can be seen.
Weathers In Rwanda
Rwanda is an equatorial country and as result, the climate is considered tropical and does not vary much throughout the year. Generally, the climate is considered warm and pleasant, although mountainous areas can be much colder than the plains areas and the rainfall is greater. Temperatures on the plains tend to be between 21-30 degrees Celsius whereas in mountainous areas day time temperatures can be down to 10 degrees, at night it can be even cooler.
The dry seasons are generally from December to early March and June to the end of August/early September but in Volcanoes NP and Nyungwe Forest that only means that it will rain less as these parks are wet throughout the year.
Best Time to Visit Rwanda
The best time to visit Rwanda for a gorilla trek is during the short dry season from mid-December to early February or over the long dry season months of June to September. These periods offer by far the easiest hiking conditions and the lowest malaria risk. Although it’s regarded as a year-round activity.
