Visiting Central African Republic? You have found my personal notes and travel tips, such as the best time to visit Central African Republic and miscellaneous facts which I obtain from a variety of sources such as first hand observations, personal conversations, magazines, newspapers, websites, books and so forth.
Best Time to Visit Central African Republic
Short Answer: December to March.
Longer Answer: Anytime between November and Mid-April should be good, with relatively cooler temperatures in the winter and lower rainfall. Gorillas are in the low lands.
August to mid-October or November is when the most rain falls, with the wet season running from May but with a respite in June and July. However, if you are going to mostly be in the rainforest, then precipitation doesn’t matter as much.
