What Is The Best Time To Do Gorilla Trekking In Uganda?

The best time to do gorilla trekking in Uganda is during the dry seasons, which are typically from June to August and from December to February. During these months, the weather is generally more stable, with lower chances of rain, making trekking conditions more favorable and the trails less muddy and slippery. Moreover, the dry seasons coincide with Uganda’s peak tourist season, offering higher chances of securing gorilla permits and clearer views of the surrounding landscapes.

However, gorilla trekking can be done year-round in Uganda, and each season has its own unique advantages. The wet seasons (March to May and September to November) may experience occasional rainfall, but they also offer lush greenery, fewer tourists, and discounted permit prices. Ultimately, the best time for gorilla trekking depends on personal preferences regarding weather, budget, and tolerance for crowds, but planning ahead and considering these factors can enhance the overall experience.
