The best time to visit Burundi

It is paramount to remember that Mountain gorillas can be tracked throughout the year because their movements are not affected by changing seasons. The best time to go gorilla tracking is in the dry season where the vegetation is not thick and the ground trails aren’t very slippery. Getting this time right is complicated because global warming has affected weather patterns a lot in Africa making it very hard to predict the beginning and end of the wet and dry seasons. At the end of the day, the final decision of when to visit the gorillas remains with the traveler.  READ MORE
