Thanks to its equatorial placement, Uganda is the perfect destination for year-round travel. Rainy seasons traditionally occur in Oct/Nov and Mar/Apr. In recent years however, this has been inconsistent. The climate depends on the geographical area, Savannah generally being warm while the mountains tend towards cool. The temperature in savannah areas can vary between 22°c and 32°c and in the mountains, it can fall as low as 8°c in certain months.

Please see our packing lists for recommended clothing and equipment. Kindly bear in mind that Ugandan’s dress modestly and expect the same of their visitors. Our advice is that you travel in the period most convenient to you. Rainfall is often strong but short-lived and can be enjoyed!
