RWANDA TRIBE

Tribes In Rwanda: Located in the Great Rift Valley, Rwanda lies at the heart of the great lakes region of East Africa. Entirely found in the southern hemisphere with little distance from the Equator, Rwanda has two wet and dry seasons in a year. The country has a population of 12.9 million people occupying 26,338 square kilometers of land making it the most densely populated mainland county in Africa. Encompassed in Highlands, Rwanda has been branded as the land of a thousand hills. With the great scenery and unique experience not forgetting the very warm-hearted people, should be on all tourist’s bucket lists in Africa.

Rwanda primarily has three tribes and they include the Hutu, the Tutsi and the Twa – all unique in their ways prompting their safari visit while in Rwanda. The Hutus constitute about 85%, the Tutsi about 14%, and the minority 1% are the Twa. After the infamous Rwandan genocide, people seized to identify themselves by their ethnic attachments but now rather use the umbrella word Rwandan to identify themselves.

However today, you can’t tell someone’s tribe in public and since the genocide. Rwanda rather accepted themselves as Rwandans, putting all their tribalistic differences aside. One of the things that enrich Rwandan History is the massacre that happened in the recent past known as the Rwandan genocide.

As you are transferring for your Rwanda Safaris, you travel in a 4×4 car which is comfortable and convenient to use to any destinations of your choice. Saso Uganda Safaris have a Team of Travel experts to tailor make your specific Rwanda Safari Packages so that you enjoy the Best Rwanda Tribe on Holiday.

Rwanda Climate – Temperatures and Rainfall

Temperature-wise, Rwanda Safari Tours experiences little change in highs and lows from month to month, and no real winter/summer distinction as it is so close to the equator.  For much of the year, the daytime temperatures are a very pleasant mid to high 20s centigrade (25-28C). (This equates to the mid 70s to early 80s in Fahrenheit)

Best Time To Go Gorilla Trekking In Rwanda

Although it’s regarded as a year-round activity, the Best Time To Visit Rwanda for a Gorilla Trekking Rwanda is during the short dry season from mid-December to early February or over the long dry season months of June to September.

Best Time To Go Chimpanzee Trekking In Rwanda

The Best Time To Go To Rwanda for chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe, however, is during the two rainy seasons – mid-February to early June and mid-September to mid-December – as the apes are easier to locate.

Best Time To Visit Rwanda By Season

The climate in Rwanda is characterized by the following seasons:

  1. Long rains: March – May
  2. Long drying time: May – October
  3. Short rains: October – December
  4. Short drying time: December – March

Rwanda is a destination for all seasons, but the drier period from June to September is best for spotting the country’s undoubted highlight, the mountain gorilla.

The rainy seasons from March to May and June to September are the optimum times for tracking chimpanzees.

Temperatures hardly vary throughout the seasons due to Rwanda’s position just south of the Equator, with warm days and nights that can be cool, especially at altitude.
