Best time to visit Rwanda on a self drive with us

Rwanda can be visited all year round but there is the best time to visit Rwanda which is during the dry season
Planning a Rwanda visit?, Rwanda is a year-round destination though for general wildlife viewing the dry seasons are the best time to visit Rwanda. If you’re a birder, the best time to visit Rwanda is from about November to March as resident birds are supplemented by flocks of migrant species.
If your main focus is gorillas, you can come at any time of the year, thou the rainy season is more difficult and hectic for trekking.
Rwanda’s Season

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)
