Best Time to do the 2 days tour.

Any time of the year is fine, however we recommend that you trek gorillas during the drier months of the year which is June to Mid October and the December to Mid March. Other months are wet and therefore tracking during the wet months makes the trek strenuous and hard especially for those who are not adventurous. It is also note worthy, that despite the fact that the other months are wet, one can still track gorillas even during these months.

the benefits of doing the 2 days Rwanda gorilla tour during the low season is that you get services at a discounted rate. For example hotel rates are reduced during these months and you get to stay in 5 star hotels at 3 star rates.
