What is the best time to travel to Uganda
June-August & December-February Dry Season
The best time to travel to Uganda is the dry seasons from June to August and December to February. This is the time when there is less vegetation cover making it favorable to spot wildlife as it congregates around the water sources. If you are looking at participating in primate walks, the nature trails are less slippery and less challenging. The months with the best weather are from January to February and June to August. Temperatures barely change throughout the seasons, sitting around 24°C to 30°C, so you can visit Uganda all year round.
Travel Tip: These months are high or peak seasons and it’s recommended to book your primate’s walk permits and preferred accommodations in advance. Please note that within the tropical forested areas, the downpour is expected anytime but the skies do clear up thereafter. Pack some light clothes and sandals for comfort.
March-May & September-November Wet Season
This is a low season and the best time for Travel Photographers! The rains have set in and the vegetation cover is greener than ever. The wildlife looks amazing against lush green backdrops and clear skies making it favorable for wildlife and scenic photography. You are likely to spot newly born wildlife as well. At times road navigation is a challenge and some activities like nature walks can be delayed as the trails can become slippery. The heaviest rainfall patterns are in March, April, and May while shorter patterns are in September, October, and November. Bird watching is best in the rainy months between March–May, and October-November due to various migratory patterns.
Travel Tip: Get steady hiking boots and rain jackets or coats which will come in handy. At times accommodations do offer low season rates leading to attractive tour price quotations.
No matter the weather as it’s unpredictable at times, Uganda can be visited all year round. So get that flight ticket booked, tag your friends along, and get packing. Destination Uganda awaits to take you on a journey of a lifetime.
