Best time for Uganda Long safaris
Uganda, also known as the pearl of Africa has a beautiful equatorial climate. This means it can be visited throughout the year.
June-October and December to February, it is sunny and ideal for game drives. Boat safaris in Murchison Falls National park, Queen Elizabeth National park and Lake Mburo National park are also great during this time. Many animals like elephants, buffalo, antelopes and many birds can be seen during boat safaris.
It should be noted that the sunny months are also the peak season months and so safaris must be booked well in advance to avoid disappointments especially if one wants to go gorilla trekking. Accommodations too book out for these months.
The green months of March to May and November are the low season months best for bird watching. The country is very green too and animals do not move far for water and food. Primates do not travel far into the forests looking for fruits etc, and so the treks are shorter but more difficult because of the mud.
The disadvantage of the green months is the slippery mud roads. But we do use 4 x 4 WD safari land cruisers and safari vans and our safari guides are excellent drivers.
