The climate of Bunia (Democratic Republic of the Congo)
Bunia is located in the northeastern part of the country on Lake Albert. The most important form of transport to and from the city is via the airport. Most roads in and around Bunia are inaccessible during the rainy period and are badly maintained because of the conflicts in the area. Bunia is the center of the Ituri conflict, a conflict between the Lenda and Hema tribes. Nowadays the UN peace corps is present to prevent conflicts. Besides the fight about territory and power the conflict is also about natural sources. In the vicinity of Bunia several gold mines can be found. Because the city is located on a plateau the climate differs from other regions in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Although the climate has characteristics of a tropical rainforest climate temperatures are too low in June, July and August to be classified as such. During the night temperatures may also drop because of the altitude at which the city is situated. Rainfall is constant all year round. Although temperatures are slightly lower than in other parts of the country it is still fairly warm in Bunia.
