When is the best time of the year to visit?

The Republic of Congo offers its best conditions for a visit during the period from June to August. This time frame is characterized by cooler temperatures and lower rainfall, making it the optimal choice for travelers. However, it's important to note that in the northern regions, rain may still occur during this period. While the Republic of Congo experiences a relatively milder climate during this time, the moisture levels remain high, resulting in cloudy skies, especially in the central and southern areas where it is the dry season. Additionally, the plateau regions can have cool nights, and even the coastal areas may be a bit cool for a typical beach holiday, partly due to limited sunshine. August, marking the end of the dry season, holds a particular highlight for wildlife enthusiasts. During this time, the animals of the savanna gather near the few remaining waterholes or along the rivers, making them easier to observe and spot.
