The greatest time to visit Rwanda is between June and September when it’s drier and you have the best chance of seeing the mountain gorillas, the nation’s undisputed top attractions.
The best periods to track chimpanzees are during the wet months of March through May and November. And it’s quieter then.
Due to Rwanda’s location just south of the Equator, temperatures rarely change throughout the seasons.

Depending on the region of the country you visit, the days are warm and comfortable in the mid to late teens. It can get chilly at night, especially up high.

Travel to Rwanda between October and November
Quick bursts of rain that clear to expose blue skies are more common in October and November. It’s the perfect time to take photos and take in Rwanda’s stunning mountain beauty.
