Rwanda is one of the most temperate countries around, with temperatures rarely rising above 90 °F or lowering below 50 °F. However, Rwanda’s infamous rainy seasons are nothing to be scoffed at. From the months of March to May and October to November, tourists should be wary of attempting the Congo Nile Trail due to the season’s impressive downpours. While there will definitely be some nice and dry days during the rainy season, the weather is just not reliable enough that time of year to plan an extended (and outdoor) adventure.
