Uganda Weather


Uganda safaris are available year-round, although the best trekking, hiking and game-viewing periods are during the dry months of June through early September and late December through February. Since Uganda lies on the equator, daytime temperatures in most parts of the country are consistently warm all year. Temperatures can be much cooler in the higher altitudes of Uganda's mountains, however, especially at night. The rainy seasons peak from mid-September to November and from March to May, and gorilla tracking during these times can be nearly impossible.
