Weather & Climate in Rwanda
Rwanda lies just two degrees south of the equator, but its high altitude provides this small country with a pleasant tropical highland climate. The rainy seasons in Rwanda are generally from March to the end of April or beginning of May, and again from mid-October to the middle of December. It can rain almost any time in Volcanoes National Park—the area receives 90 percent of all precipitation that falls in Rwanda. Temperatures vary considerably between locations depending on their altitude but very little from month to month in the same place.
Temperatures vary little due to the equatorial climate, modified by altitude. The temperature range is from the low 50s to the mid 80s year-round.
