Best time to trek Gorillas in Uganda
Gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks is open to visitors throughout the year. But it is best done in June, July, August and September then December, January and February. During this period, Gorilla trekking in is much easier because it is a dry season and the habitat remains relatively drier thus making it simpler for visitors to hike through the dense jungles and steep slopes to search for the Mountain Gorillas. However, March, April, May and October, November are equally good for one to embark on Gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda but these months are characterized by heavy rainfall, muddy and slippery steep slopes which make it challenging for one to hike while in search for these apes.
