The climate of Kindu (Democratic Republic of the Congo)
Kindu is the capital of the Maniema province and is located in the eastern part of the country. Kindu used to be known as Kindu Port Empain, named after the founder of the city Baron Empain. The city is located on the banks of the Congo River and used to be an important port for the trade in slaves, gold and ivory. African Slave traders used this port to transport their goods to Zanzibar. Nowadays the transportation of goods mainly goes by railway and the airport. Kindu has a tropical monsoon climate characterized by a long rainy period from August till March. Average precipitation figures may rise as high as 200 millimeters per month during this period. Because temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius all year round humidity figures are high as well during the rainy period.
