When to go on Rwanda Safaris
The best time to visit Rwanda gorillas is during the months of June to September and December to February. These months have minimal rainfall and you are certain of the best weather conditions during your budget safari in Rwanda. In fact, if you are thinking of taking a Rwanda safari in Akagera, this would be the best time for you to go. Endeavor to visit mountain gorillas during these months unless your schedule is tight. Make your bookings prior as these months also turn out to be the most competitive of the year and facilities get booked out so quickly. Besides, Rwanda is an all year round safari destination just like most of the countries in Africa! Even if rain falls, the sun will come out, dry the soil and the day of moves on.
Where are gorillas located in Rwanda?
Rwanda gorilla safaris take place in Volcanoes National Park – a world heritage site that sits on the soils of Musanze town in the northern province of Rwanda. This park shares the Virunga Conservation Area (VCA) with Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda and Virunga National Park in Congo. Gorillas here roam freely and switch between borders only that they have been barred of late. It is from this safari park where you will visit Rwanda gorillas.
