Best time to Visit Congo, Gorilla trekking in Congo

Among the top hard questions to be answered by safari companies like Active african vacation is to tell when to visit for gorilla trekking in democratic republic of congo, gorilla trekking is done in virunga national park and kahuzi biega national park all located in eastern part of congo.

Democratic republic of congo typically experiences two seasons: wet and dry. The climate during these seasons can vary greatly according to a country’s topography, altitude and proximity to the coastline. This can have a huge impact on what travellers will be able to see and do during their vacation. Wildlife behaviour, park accessibility, temperature and appeal of beach hots pots are all dramatically affected by the rainfall or lack of it that accompanies Africa’s wet and dry seasons.

The first of these occurs between March and May and the second happens from mid-October to mid-December. Although wildlife is usually harder to spot during the rainy seasons, the landscape during this time takes on a vivid green colour thanks to the hydrated plant life, making it the most beautiful time to visit. Another benefit of traveling during this time is that the parks will be much less crowded and the experience will be significantly cheaper.

The periods between June and October and December to February are considered the best times to go on safari in this part of Africa if you are hoping to see as much wildlife as possible. The lack of water means that the remaining water holes become much more crowded as animals have fewer drinking options. The temperatures during the dry season are also much more bearable with the days warm and sunny and the evenings cooling off.
