The best time to visit Uganda for 12 days Uganda safari and white water rafting is in June to August. You can also visit between December to February. These are the months with little to know rains hence allowing for better wildlife viewing. During the peak/dry season, animals gather to drink in the few remaining waterholes allowing visitors to spot most of them in once place. The roads are passable since there is no mud.
The low/wet season is in the months of March to April and also October to November. These months receive less visitors because of the heavy rains. Conditions in the park are not so good as roads and sometime bridges get damaged. The animals scatter in different areas of the park because there is plenty of water and fresh grass. This scattering of animals can affect the quality of game drives. The wet season has its advantages. There are discounts in the hotels and you can have a more private tour since there are fewer tourist. The rainy season is excellent for birding because it is usually the breeding season with more migratory birds from as far as Europe. The rain season leaves the country very beautiful and green.
