Democratic Republic Of The Congo Climate & Weather

Democratic Republic Of The Congo Climate and Weather


The DRC straddles the equator and therefore experiences a tropically hot and humid climate. South of the equator there are frequent heavy rains between October and May, and north of the equator the rain falls between April and November. The eastern highlands have a more temperate climate. In the low central basin average annual temperatures are around 77°F (25°C), while at the higher altitudes the temperatures hover around 68°F (20°C). The average annual rainfall in Kinshasa is 56 inches (1,422mm). The DRC is not currently a suitable place to go on holiday but if it were a tourist destination the best time to visit would vary enormously depending on which area of the vast country you wanted to explore and what activities you are interested in.
