Uganda Safari in May – What to expect on Safari in Uganda – With Gorilla & Chimpanzee permits
Uganda safari in May – May is another rainy month across the Pearl of Africa Uganda, although it is not as wet as April. It is still the low season – so you can find discounts on lodging and hotels and some other services.
The long rains of March and April continue into May so this month is not considered the best time to travel. However, if you are not too worried about experiencing some rain during your safari it can be a lovely time to explore Uganda. Landscapes will be lush and verdant after months of rain which may make wildlife more difficult to see, but the vegetation will create stunning backdrops for photography.
May is not the best time to travel to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks for Gorilla tracking as the ground will still be wet making trekking more difficult. Alternative National parks that are good at this time include Kibale Forest National Park for Chimpanzee tracking and Murchison Falls National park allowing you to witness the mighty Nile River.
Some roads and trails may be impassable at the beginning of May depending on the intensity of the rainy season so please ask Great Adventure Safaris in advance of booking if there are certain areas you would like to travel to.

A perfect compensation for the scarce wildlife sightings due to abundance in water and grazing land away from the proximity of the game viewing tracks.
