The best time to visit Uganda is during dry seasons: between December and February, and between June and August, This is when conditions are particularly good for trekking to see mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. Game spotting in national parks is also good at this time, as well as end of February and end of spetember.
Officially, Uganda's dry seasons are from December/January through to mid-March and from
June through mid-September except that we are having climate changes and this may change abit.
Most rain falls in October-November and April-May. However, this doesn't mean that it rains
all day, nor does it mean it will rain every day. Usually there's a tropical shower at night
or a shorter shower in afternoon hours but in Uganda you are sure that after rain, sunshine
The weather is no reason to avoid traveling in the wet season - you might even consider it
because of the easy availability of gorilla permits and favorable hotel environment with little or no congestion.
On a serious note however, as in the rest of the world, the East African climate is
changing, making it more difficult for us to predict the weather during your safari.
However, in Uganda the temperature is very stable and pleasant, with sunshine almost on each
of the 365 days a year. During the day, the temperature averages between 23 and 27°C,
although in some places it can be quite chilly at night.
One remarkable aspect about Uganda safaris is: whether you travel in the dry, dusty months
or in the wet season, you will never find the crowded tourism like in Kenya or Tanzania. If
you spot a lion or leopard, it is very likely that you will be the only one to see it - even
in peak season!
