Gorilla tracking weather in February
February is a relatively dry month in Uganda, so it is a good time to visit Bwindi forest s in the south of Uganda and go for Gorilla trekking. In the north of the country it is particularly hot and dusty and not an ideal time for wildlife viewing. Other months which are dry and also offer great Gorilla trekking experiences include: January, June, July, August, September, December.
However please note that despite the fact that little or no rainfall is expected in February, it may rain heavily in some days given that the Mountain Gorillas stay in tropical rain forests.

If you plan to book your Gorilla tracking holiday in February you are advised to book at least three to four months in advance such that your Gorilla trekking permit is secured when there is still availability. Also if you book in advance, you are able to choose which sector to track from and the best the lodge options when space is still available. Buhoma sector the Northern region of Bwindi forest for example usually sells out four months before the tracking date and if you wish to track one of the habituated Gorilla families in Buhoma region, you have to book your safari in advance. Other sectors in Bwindi include Ruhija the Eastern region, Rushaga and Nkuringo in the Southern region.
