Weatherwatch: how Rwanda’s climate differs from rest of east Africa
The whole country lies at a higher altitude than virtually anywhere in England
Rwanda is a landlocked country in east-central Africa, just south of the equator, on the watershed between the Nile and Congo River basins. It is bordered by Burundi to the south, Tanzania to the east, Uganda to the north and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west.
Like other parts of equatorial Africa, its climate alters very little month-to-month and season-to-season, with average minimum temperatures in the capital, Kigali, varying by little more than a degree (between 15C and 16.2C), while average daily maxima differ only a little more, from 25.9C to 28.2C.
