Uganda experiences a tropical climate with two main seasons: a dry season and a rainy season.

Dry Season (December to February and June to August): This is generally considered the best time to visit Uganda, as the weather is drier and more stable. During these months, you can expect warm temperatures and less rainfall. It is an excellent time for gorilla trekking, wildlife safaris, and exploring national parks.

Rainy Season (March to May and September to November): The rainy season is characterized by more frequent rainfall, but it can still be a good time to visit Uganda depending on your interests. The landscape is lush and green during this time, and wildlife is more active. It is also a great time for bird watching as migratory species are present. However, some roads may become impassable due to heavy rains, and trekking conditions can be more challenging.

Day 5

Land & Water Safari at Queen

Today morning, you’ll enjoy an exciting game-viewing drive in Queen Elizabeth.

For this reason, Bwindi Impenetrable is one of the best places on the planet to come face-to-face with the species.

All meals included.

Day 7

Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi National Park

Today is a gorilla-tracking adventure! At the beginning of the trek, park rangers will brief the group to ensure your safety and that of the great apes. The trek usually takes three to six hours. We recommend bringing a good pair of walking boots or shoes and light clothes with a rain jacket.

The rangers will guide you through the village gardens and into the jungle-like forest. They will escort you through the (sometimes) thick bush, occasionally hacking the dense undergrowth with a machete as you search for gorillas. As part of anti-poaching efforts, the apes are under 24-hour monitoring, so you’re almost guaranteed to see them!

Once you have located a gorilla family, you will be asked to leave all your belongings on the side and approach the gentle giants with only your camera. It is advised that you keep within 23ft (7m) of the apes to reduce the risk of transmitting human diseases to them. This also helps guides interpret the animals’ behavior and easily retreat if danger is perceived.

You will be able to see the families in their natural environment: feeding, playing, interacting with each other, or just sleeping. The gorillas are usually quite curious to see humans as well! You’ll be allowed exactly one hour with the apes before returning to base.

All meals included.

Day 8

Transfer to The Airport

After breakfast, you’ll begin the journey back to Entebbe International Airport. On the way, you will stop for a delicious picnic lunch, and have a fun photo opportunity at the Equator.
