This really was so much more than I expected it to be with incredibly welcoming and friendly people, amazing wildlife encounters, extraordinary scenery and views. I learnt so much about the culture of each country and driving between areas, whilst long journeys in many cases, was such a great way to travel as you see and learn so much more and I really felt that I got under the skin of the country. The diversity of game and activities, especially in Uganda, was also much greater than I had anticipated and extremely welcome. Less
When is the best time
to go on a wildlife holiday in Uganda?
There’s less variation of climate through the year in Uganda than in many other African countries.
Your days will be hot and sunny, although there may also be periods of clouds and rain with the least in December/January and July/August. Nights will be cooler, particularly in the areas higher above sea level such as the gorilla parks at Bwindi and close to Mgahinga.
Many people combine a shorter holiday to see the gorillas in Uganda with a big game safari in one of its neighbouring countries. In many cases, the decision to visit Uganda at a particular time will be based on when the climate in Kenya or Tanzania is suitable.
