Best time to visit Congo

Congo can be visited year-round, and gorillas can be tracked at any time of year, but this is easier during the drier months, December to February and June to August. The average day time temperature generally ranges from 21 to 27°C, with little change from month to month due to Congo’s proximity to the equator.

 

CONGO'S SEASONS

Congo has an equatorial climate with green (wet) and dry seasons.

 

Green Season

March to May (long rains) and September to November (short rains). In these months the weather can be humid, but the rainfall makes the air clear, good for photography.

Dry Season

June to August and December to February. During these months it is less humid and it can be a little cooler than in the green season, but the air can be hazy.
