The climate in Kigali , Rwanda is temperate, and the year is divided by two distinct rainy seasons.  Although the temperatures in Kigali are warm throughout the year, certain months can be much more comfortable to visit during than others. 

            On average, the hottest months of the year are February and March, during which time the daily high temperatures will generally hover in the mid to upper 80’s, with temperatures frequently reaching the 90’s.  The nighttime temperatures during these months will generally drop to the mid to lower 60’s. 

            In contrast, the coldest months of the year on average are June and July, during which time the daily high temperatures will still reach the lower 80’s.  The nighttime temperatures during these months will generally drop to the lower 60’s.  This comparison shows that temperatures throughout the year are always warm, if not hot. 

            The rainy seasons in Rwanda are generally from February to April, and again from November to January, but Kigali ’s high altitude causes less rain than in other, low lying areas of the country.  March through May is the rainiest time of the year in Kigali .
