gorilla trekking in march- best time to see gorillas – Guaranteed Gorilla permits
While planning your Gorilla trekking safari in March, those looking to trek and see Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park may want to avoid this period. Gorilla trekking is not impossible at this time, however these southern regions experience more rain generally, and the trekking conditions are more favorable during drier months. The northern rain season runs from April to October, and most of the northern areas are not very much visited by tourists.
Uganda in general is experiencing many changes in its climate conditions whereby we receive rains unexpectedly and sometimes it shines where we expect rains. This has brought in a lot of challenges most especially for tourists who tend to avoid Gorilla trekking in the rains.
Wondering when is the best time to visit Bwindi National Park for your Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Gorilla trekking is a special arrangement done any time of the year and chances of seeing the Gorillas are 99% since these Gorillas are monitored on a daily basis and before you start your hike in the Forest, there is an advanced team of rangers who go ahead of you to find these Gorillas and they communicate to your ranger guide so that he knows where to start from making it 99% chances of seeing them. Bwindi Forest however, has varied weather patterns because of its tropical climate. Daytime temperatures range from 23 to 26 degrees Celsius with a significant drop at night to around 11 degrees Celsius.
Given the tropical nature of the forest, rainfall can happen anytime in Bwindi, so there is no complete dry season. The months of June and July receive the lowest rainfall, while there is a period of low rainfall from December to February. The heaviest rains come in the moths of March to May and October to November.
