Tips for Gorilla Tracking in Uganda

  • Pack enough food and drinks before going for Gorilla Tracking. Gorilla Tracking is a very tiresome activity and you won't find any spot to buy eats or drinks in the forests.
  • Try and move with a fully charged camera because you wouldn't want to miss out on putting the memorable experience in a recording and probably watch it after.
  • Wear high and strong boots because the jungle is quite rough and you easily get pricked if your boots are not strong enough or shot.
  • Dress well. We recommend wearing tracking pants, long sleeved shirts, a hat not forgetting a rain coat in case rain gets you deep in the forest.
  • Gorilla Tracking permits have to be secured early enough especially in the peak season (June to September).
  • Try and enjoy every moment of your adventure while tracking.

While on your gorilla safaris Uganda tours, you will be briefed about all these and more information shall be provided to you. Feel free to ask questions in case you need to know anything about the activity. Our tour guides are experiences and will share with you all the knowledge you need to know.

Seasons in Uganda

seasons in Uganda

Uganda's climate is tropical and rainy with two dry seasons, June to August and December to February. During these months the game parks are not so wet and remain just perfect for a trip and a few activities like Game Drives. If you ask us when to visit Uganda, we would definitely recommend those two seasons for the best time to visit Uganda. You can as well try out the rest of the months, the weather might be unpredictable but could still be perfect for a trip.

Wildlife is a bit hard to spot in rainy seasons compared to dry seasons. This is because the animals take shelter from the rain and hardly come out in the open. The chances are minimal but it's still possible to spot wildlife during rainy seasons. If you are looking to have a successful Gorilla Tracking experience then i recommend securing your Gorilla Tracking permits for the dry season in advance.

Roads in Ugandan National Parks are also not so good during rainy seasons. They are very slippery and several vehicles get stuck in mud on some occasions. However, you don't need to worry about this because our 4-Wheel Drive vehicles are strong and stable enough to move smoothly through the roads.
