Best time for wildlife safari in Uganda
Uganda’s national parks are open to visitors and wildlife safaris are done throughout the year. However, the most conducive time for these wildlife safaris is the dry seasons of June-August and December-January. In these months, Uganda receives the least amount of rainfall making it more comfortable to embark on these safaris. The wildlife congregate on the few watering holes to quench their thirst, offering unparalleled viewing experiences. Visitors are advised to book at least 5 months before their safari because the chimpanzee and gorilla permits are limited.
