Uganda is renowned as having one of the highest levels of biodiversity on earth and is the ultimate safari destination for travellers looking for a dose of adventure alongside unique nature experiences. The gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest are without a doubt the most sought-after of all Uganda’s wildlife but there’s much more too. Combining gorilla trekking with the traditional safari experiences of Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls, wildlife holidays in Uganda are hard to beat. Encountering the endangered chimpanzees of Kibale Forest National Park is just another extraordinary experience to be had during a safari holiday in Uganda, and this is one of the best places in Africa to see these wild primates.
When to go
Uganda typically has two annual dry periods between June and August and December and February. During these months wildlife is easier to spot and primate trekking through the rainforest is less challenging. Wildlife, including primates, can be seen year-round and so travel can be arranged at any time. Uganda’s wettest months are usually April and May.
