Peak of wet season, with worse weather of the year

Dry season: conditions are particularly good for trekking to see mountain gorillas and chimpanzees, wildlife viewing is at it’s peak. November usually has more rainfall.

The ideal times to visit Uganda are from June to August and December to February, coinciding with the dry seasons. This is when wildlife viewing is at its best. Primate walks in the forests are a significant highlight of any Ugandan safari. While the rainforest habitat is inherently wet and rain is inevitable, heavy showers are often followed by bright sunshine.

I still get goosebumps remembering the human eye-to-eye contact I had with the
 silverback gorilla

Uganda is a fantastic place to experience wildlife in both forest and savannah environments. Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks is a highlight, while chimpanzees are easily found in Kibale National Park and other sites.
