Tailor-made Africa Safaris Gorilla Tours
Best Time To Go
East Africa’s raised topography means a cooler climate than its equatorial setting suggests but if you’re planning a gorilla trekking safari, it’s important to know when to go to Uganda for the easiest trekking conditions. Although it’s regarded as a year-round activity, the best time to visit Uganda/Rwanda for gorilla trekking is during the country’s two dry seasons: January and February and from June to September.
Africa safari game viewing in East Africa’s savannah parks is best at the end of the dry seasons – February through March and September through early October – when wildlife is concentrated around water sources. Bird watching is fantastic all year round but is at its peak between November and April when migrant species are present. April and May, even when considered the rainy season, its great time to visit Uganda and the Gorillas. The views are stunning and it rains mostly in the afternoon for 1 hr and not tempering with activities.
