Is April a good month to visit Uganda?
As the rains falls throughout the month, a thick layer of mist settles onto of the canopies and around the tops of trees, making April a beautiful time to visit.
Gorillas tend to linger on the warmer lower slopes of the mountains during the rainy season. This means that while the trekking routes are muddier, they are typically shorter.
For those wanting to escape the rain, Murchison Falls National Park further north has a drier climate than the south-west.
Average day time temperatures peak around 26 Celsius, and rises as the month progresses. As always in the rainy season, you should be able to benefit from cheaper lodge and hotel rates.
