The best time to visit Uganda is during the dry seasons, which are generally from December to February and June to September. These months provide more stable weather conditions, making it easier to explore the country’s national parks, go on safaris, and engage in outdoor activities. The dry seasons are particularly ideal for gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, as the trails are more accessible.

However, it’s important to note that Uganda’s climate can vary, and some regions may experience occasional rain even during the dry seasons. If you’re planning to visit specific areas or engage in certain activities, it’s advisable to check the weather conditions for those particular regions.

The wet seasons, from March to May and October to November, bring more rainfall and can make travel more challenging, especially in terms of road conditions and wildlife viewing. Despite this, some travelers may find the lush landscapes during the wet season to be appealing, and it can also be a good time for birdwatching.

The ideal number of days to spend in Uganda depends on your interests, the places you want to visit, and the activities you plan to engage in. Here are some general recommendations:

  1. Gorilla Trekking: If gorilla trekking is on your agenda, you’ll need to allocate at least 2 to 3 days. This includes the trek itself and possibly a day for rest or other activities.

  2. Safari and Wildlife: For a safari experience in one or more of Uganda’s national parks (such as Queen Elizabeth National Park or Murchison Falls National Park), it’s recommended to spend a minimum of 3 to 4 days to fully enjoy the wildlife and scenery.

  3. Cultural and City Exploration: If you plan to explore cities like Kampala or engage in cultural activities, consider spending an additional 2 to 3 days.

  4. Relaxation and Leisure: If you want some downtime to relax by the lakeshores or enjoy other leisure activities, you might want to add a few more days to your itinerary.

In total, a well-rounded visit to Uganda could range from 7 to 14 days or more, depending on your preferences and the specific attractions you want to experience. Keep in mind that travel times between destinations can vary due to road conditions, so it’s essential to plan accordingly.
