Rwanda in June; weather and where to go
June marks the start of the long dry season, and the start of the peak time for travelling to Rwanda, although it remains fairly quiet until we get into July and August, due to the summer holidays in Europe. The season lasts until September, and is a popular time to go, for many reasons.
Although it can still rain at this time, or any time to be honest, due to location and altitude. Note that gorilla tracking permits sell out quite far in advance now, sometimes you need to obtain them a year in advance, so it is a good idea to get these secured as soon as possible – we will do this for you when you book your safari.
Firstly, this is a great time to track the mountain gorillas; with rain less likely, the ground is getting dryer, making the ground a little more stable under your feet.
