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.
Miscellaneous Travel Tips for Central African Republic
