Rwanda is all year round tourist destination though it will depend on where you want to go and your main interest in travel. For Gorilla trekking we do recommend travel from mid-May to mid-October, as this is the long dry season in Rwanda. Due to its high altitude, Rwanda has a lovely tropical highland climate, on average daytime temperatures average between 30°C/86°F.
