The climate of Kikwit (Democratic Republic of the Congo)
Kikwit is located in the southwestern part of the country on the banks of the Kwilu River. Kikwit is an important city in the Bandundu province. Kikwit has its own airport and soccer stadium and is connected to the capital of the country by a road and several rivers. The city has the questionable honor of being the first city where the Ebola virus broke out in the previous century. The Bapende people live in Kikwit. These people are famous for their beautifully masked and costumed dances. These masks can be found all over the world in etymological museums. Festivals take place here on a regular basis. During these festivals demonstrations of these dances are held. Kikwit has a tropical monsoon climate. Average daytime temperatures are above 30 degrees Celsius all year round. During the rainy period this causes humidity figures to be high as well. The dry period is from June till August. Kikwit gets slightly more hours of sunshine during this period. Even night time temperatures hardly ever drop below 20 degrees Celsius.
