Uganda Overview

Why should I travel to Uganda? Uganda offers a wide variety of experiences, from classic big game viewing in the Queen Elizabeth National Park to mountain gorilla and chimpanzee trekking. There are many pristine rainforests with unique fauna and flora including within the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Kibale Forest and the Rwenzori National Park. Uganda also has a rich culture with over 30 languages spoken by many different tribes, ranging from the regal Buganda and Bunyoro to forest-dwelling Batwa pygmies.

When is the best time to see Gorillas in Uganda? Gorilla trekking can take place at any time of year with April/May and November being wetter. However, be aware that rain occurs all year round. For general game viewing safaris, the best time to go is during the dry season (between June and September).

What is the climate in Uganda? Although Uganda is on the Equator, much of the country is at relatively high altitude and temperatures are very pleasant (25°-28°C). The mountain areas where gorillas are found can be cool to cold. Rain falls throughout the year but is heaviest between Mar-May and Oct-Nov.

What can I combine Uganda with? Uganda can be combined with neighbouring Kenya or Tanzania and we highly recommend including renowned game parks such as the Masai Mara or the Serengeti into your itinerary.

How to get to Uganda? The Ugandan capital of Entebbe can be reached by air from Nairobi in Kenya, Kilimanjaro and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, with Emirates from Dubai and with SAA from Johannesburg.
