Despite its proximity to the equator, the high altitude keeps temperatures relatively cool. Temperatures vary considerably depending on their altitude, but do not vary much from month to month. Rwanda's temperature ranges between 24°c and 28°c.
Dry season in Rwanda (April to October)
The hottest months are August and September.
The dry season months tend to be better for wildlife viewing, and certainly make life easier on gorilla treks.
Rainy season in Rwanda (March to May and October to December)
The wet season is better for tracking chimps in Nyungwe and the scenery will be greener and sky less hazy than in the dry season, which is better for photography.
Travel can be difficult in the rainy season as roads get very muddy.
