The best time to go to the Republic of Congo
The best time to visit the Congo is dependant on the area of the country you are wishing to travel to, but either between May and September or between January and February.
In the southern section of the Republic of Congo near the capital of Brazzaville for example, daily temperatures may fluctuate anywhere between 20 and 30°c, although it does tend to be slightly cooler in the long dry season in the middle of the year, making it more advisable to travel then. Further north, however, we see the seasons reverse, with the wetter months generally known to be between April and October.
In general, the calendar year can be divided into the four following seasons that can be used as a rough guide when planning your trip. If heading to the area in and around Brazzaville and the southern parts of the country you should aim for travel in the long dry season between May and September, whilst the north is best visited in the short dry season between January and February.
The climate in the Congo is generally equatorial and consistent, but there are some variations between the northern and southern regions to bear in mind.
