Best time to visit Uganda

Uganda has got a raised topography which means a cooler than its equatorial setting suggests and in case you are planning a gorilla trek, it’s important to know when to go to Uganda for the easiest trekking conditions. Even though its regarded as a year round activity, the best time to visit Uganda for gorilla trekking is during the country’s two dry seasons: January and February and from June to September.

Game viewing in Uganda’s savannah national parks is best at the end of the dry seasons; February and March and September and early October when the wildlife is concerned around water bodies. Bird watching is fantastic all year round but is at its peak between November and April when migrant species are present. We’d recommend avoiding a Uganda safari entirely during the heavy rains of April and May.
