The best time to go to the Central African Republic
The best time to go to the Central African Republic is July and October. Being a tropical rainforest, the conditions are hot and humid most of the time, but it can be cooler at night. The majority of the rain falls in the southwest region where the largest trees grow. The Dzanga Sangha Reserve experiences an average annual rainfall of 59 inches (1500 mm), and average temperatures range between 24 and 29°C or 75 and 84°F.
Those looking to combine the two countries in one safari need to also bear in mind that in order to transfer between them by pirogue, river levels must be high with adequate flow to enable the transfer which menas we recommend travel between July to October.
The rainforest within Dzanga Sangha National Park offers explorers an equatorial climate with no pronounced summer or winter, which means there are generally opportunities for year-round travel.
