Month By Month For Travelling To Uganda

Visiting Uganda from January and February

January is the hottest month and the weather is excellent for trekking chimpanzees and the endangered mountain gorillas, in some of the ideal places to visit in Uganda. The skies are evident, there is little rain and much sun. You can see gorilla families on the movement through the overgrown forests, a spectacularly connective adventure with Mother Nature and her wild animals.

February is a dry month which makes it an excellent period to pay a visit to the Uganda national parks in the south and to do some gorilla trekking without having a trek in muddy situations. The north of the country can be very hot and dusty during this season.

Travelling To Uganda From March To May

March marks the start of the first rainfall season. This is the ideal chance to see the animals in the national parks giving birth to their young ones and birdwatchers will be welcomed to a display of bright, winged attractiveness.

April is by far the rainy month of the year. Many roads may be locked due to the constant rainfall and the national parks are far quiet and calm. However, this is a wonderful period to take advantage of discounted costs for hotels, lodges, Uganda safari tours, and also on gorilla trekking permits having in mind it will be a wet-weather Uganda safari.

May is another different rainy season across Uganda, although there is not completely as much rain as in April. Despite the weather in Uganda during this season, this can be an attractive period to discover the surrounding places.

Visiting Uganda From June To August

June is one of the ideal periods to travel Uganda and it is the beginning of the peak season for luxury Uganda safaris. When it arrives to booking for gorilla trekking, we recommend that you book in advance, mainly for permits, to avoid any unwanted bothers.

July is one of the ideal months for gorilla trekking and safaris in Uganda. The wildlife usually comes and gathers around water sources, making them free to be seen in the national parks. This is an ideal period for visiting gorillas in Uganda, mainly due to the good weather conditions, the hiking paths are clear of mud and are safe to navigate.

When coming to Uganda in August, anyone in search of excellent game viewing will have the opportunity to not just see elephants and lions, they may also see the elusive leopard. This is known as one of the ideal seasons to visit Uganda’s many national parks.

Visiting Uganda From September To December

September is mainly known as the end of the dry season, but relying on when the rains come, you may have some rainfalls on your Uganda safari. This is not an excellent period of year for gorilla trekking, however, if you can have the possibility of rain, you will definitely save money on lodging and different travel costs.

October is not an active month when visiting Uganda. Costs are affordable and this is the right period of the year for gorilla trekking permits. Most of the national game parks are always accessible during this period, but the rain can be slightly unreliable.

During November, the rain continues. The dry grasslands in Uganda turn vibrant green due to all the thunderstorms, but there are few tourists this month because of less-than-good weather conditions.

December is the end of the rainy season when the wet goes off, making it an ideal month to visit Uganda. This is the right period to travel to the northern and southern areas for game viewing. And, it’s one of the excellent periods for birdwatching, with a broad variety of migrating birds having their way into the place.
