Best Time to Visit Rwanda
When is the perfect time to make safaris to Rwanda?
Safari experiences to Rwanda are wonderful throughout the year, although each season (dry and wet) offers its own nicety and exceptional appeal, making it obvious that there is just no one perfect time to make safaris to this remarkable safari destination.
For visitors that travel in the dry season, there is reduced water availability which usually contributes to high concentration of game species hence providing the best visibility in the savannah plains of Akagera National Park.
This season is also the climax of gorilla trekking tours as hiking trails are drier and forest sparser thus making it less challenging and more interesting for travellers planning to see mountain gorillas, chimpanzees and golden monkeys in their natural habitats.
