“Moderate” tropical climate

Burundi has a “moderate” tropical climate with average temperatures between 23 and 24°C. This is a gift from nature to have such an average near the Equatorial area known for its heat and humidity. In Bujumbura city where it is hotter, average temperatures are about 25°C.

The country has two important seasons: the dry season from June to September and the rainy season from February to May. The remaining time is made up of middle seasons – half dry and half rainy – with a short rainy season between September and December, and a short dry season between January and February. The vegetation is lush and agriculture important.
