Best time to visit Uganda

Queen Elizabeth National Park is open all-year-long, but wildlife viewing is best done from January to February and June to July (the Dry seasons).

However, this scenic park is at its most beautiful in the Wet seasons from March to May and August to December. April, May, August and September are very wet months and during that time, the rain might interfere with your safari.
