Uganda is popular for mountain gorillas – a very rare species of primates that inhabits hilly and mountainous areas. These gorillas can only be found in Virunga National Park Congo, Volcanoes National Park Rwanda then Mgahinga and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda. Half the population of these primates live in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – one of the country’s world heritage sites. This is partly why so many tourists flock the country each year!

When to travel to Uganda
The best time to travel to Uganda is during the dry months of the year – June – September and December to February. During these months, Uganda safaris move on smoothly but competition is usually high. Wildlife roam more within the parks on dry days and are mostly spotted at the river banks. During rainy days, they tend to take shelter from the rain and can easily access water from their hideouts. Roads are also muddy and vehicles get stuck sometimes. The only advantage with scheduling your Uganda safaris for the rainy season is the price cut in the industry. Accommodation facilities and operators have slightly lower rates.
