Due to its elevated topography, Rwanda enjoys a relatively mild and temperate climate throughout the year. The country experiences two main seasons: the dry season and the wet season.
The dry season typically occurs from June to September, offering clear skies, lower humidity, and comfortable temperatures. Daytime temperatures during this period generally range from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 27 degrees Celsius), making it an excellent time for outdoor activities, wildlife viewing, and exploring Rwanda's lush landscapes.
The wet season extends from October to May and is characterized by more frequent rainfall. The wet season is divided into the long rains, from March to May, and the short rains, from October to December. Despite the increased precipitation, temperatures remain relatively consistent, ranging from 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (15 to 24 degrees Celsius).
Rwanda's central location and diverse topography contribute to microclimates, so there can be some regional variations in weather patterns. Travelers planning a visit to Rwanda should consider these seasonal differences to make the most of their experience.
