Officially Uganda has a dry season from December/January till mid March and from June till mid September. These months are also most popular with tourists, with July and August as the peak season.
Most rain falls in October-November and April-May. However, this doesn’t mean that it rains all day. Usually it is a tropical shower at night or shortly during the day, but in Uganda you can trust that after rain comes sunshine! The weather is no reason to avoid travelling in the wet season. You might even consider it because of the availability of gorilla permits.
Like in the rest of the world, climates seem to be changing and make it more difficult for us to predict the weather during your safari. On the contrary, the temperature is very stable and pleasant, with sunshine 365 days a year. During the day the temperature averages between 23 and 27°C, though in some places it can cool down night.
One remarkable aspect about going to Uganda is, whether you travel in the dry, dusty months or in wet season, you will never find the crowded tourism like in Kenya or Tanzania. If you spot a lion or leopard, it is very likely that you will be the only one, even in peak season!
