When to Go
This safari circuit is best visited during the east African dry season, which spans roughly from June – October and January – February annually. In recent years, the dry seasons have been increasing in length due to the effects of climate change, so there is some flexibility with these months if necessary. During this period, guests will experience the best game viewing in the spare and dry bush. Furthermore, the climb through Bwindi Impenetrable Forest will be the most pleasant – and dry – during this time. While this is the high season for tourism, the parks visited are generally quiet year round and crowds will not be a major concern.
If however you have chosen this package in order to experience lush landscapes and rich birdlife – and do not mind sporadic daily rain showers – you may be happier during the rainy season.
