Gorilla trekking takes place in Bwindi forest, which is a tropical rain forest and for this matter it can rain at any time of the day but mainly rains occur during the nights and early morning hours, so the sun comes out during the time making it possible to continue with your Gorilla trekking activity and sometime no rain at all depending on your luck of the day.
For other travelers, the nice period for Gorilla trekking in Uganda are the low seasons, or the rainy season of the year, March to May and September to November, first of all, rain does not stop the activity of Gorilla trekking, unless when it is too much, you just take a break for some minutes and then continue after, you need to consider the proper gear for the Gorilla trekking. This is the time of the year when the number of people trekking mountain Gorillas lower creating more space for Gorilla permits, and during this time of the year, Lodges lower their rates as well, so for budget travelers, would recommend most the low season discounts.
