WEATHER & CLIMATE SEASONS IN UGANDA

Uganda’s tropical climate is a little different in the north and south of the country. From March to November, the north experiences a rainy and warm Wet season, followed by an almost equally warm Dry season from December to February. The south, on the other hand, has a pair of Dry seasons (December to February, and June to July) broken up by a pair of Wet seasons. The country’s higher altitudes get predictably cold, with the temperature dropping 6°C/3.5°F for every 1000m/1000ft you climb. Read More: Climate & Weather of Uganda.


BEST TIME TO GO ON A UGANDA SAFARI

* The best time to visit Uganda on Safari is June to August and December to February.

The drier months from June to August and December to February are the best for wildlife watching in Uganda. This is particularly so when it comes to the rainforest habitat preferred by primates (gorillas, chimps, golden monkeys …), and the same applies for the savannah parks where animals have little bush to hide in. There’s also plentiful sunshine at this time. In the wet months, the trekking experience can be slippery and a lot more challenging. Read More: Best time to go on safari in Uganda.


WHAT TO WEAR ON A UGANDA SAFARI

Modest clothing is recommended for your Uganda Safari.  We like to remind our travelers to pack or rather bring that which they need – Min Skirts are a BIG NO  as they are culturally interpreted as indecent dressing in most African countries including; Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania & Kenya where Realm Africa Safaris™ operates tours.
