Best time to Visit Uganda – Best time for Uganda wildlife and boat safaris – When to see mountain Gorillas in Uganda?
best time to visit Uganda the Pearl of Africa is during its two dry seasons in the year which is between December and February, and between June and August with less rain where conditions are particularly good for trekking to see Mountain Gorillas and Chimpanzees together with wildlife and boat safaris.
Game spotting in National Parks is also good at this time-as well as between February and March. Large numbers of wildlife can be seen at waterholes from September through to early October which makes game drive so productive and amazing.
Temperatures barely change throughout the seasons, sitting around 24C-30C, so you can visit Uganda all year round. The country is also fabulous for bird watching where Uganda records 1,040 bird species and spot fishing at any time of year.
The best wildlife viewing months in Uganda are during the Dry seasons from June to August and December to February. Primate walks in the forest are a big part of any safari in Uganda. The habitats of the tropical rainforests are unpredictable where it can rain any time. However, after heavy rain, the skies often open up to bright sunshine.
Uganda sits squarely on the Equator line with an average altitude of around 1,000m, which tempers the heat and that means that this is really a year-round destination visiting for tourism. March-May and Oct-Nov see the highest rainfall, but Mountain Gorillas are still lurking in the mist although trekking to find them will be slippery and slower. However, accommodation and even Gorilla permits can be much available for most dates at this time. The best time to visit Uganda is June-Sep, which is the peak season but Uganda remains happily oblivious to mass tourism and you won’t need to worry about crowds.
