Is August a good time to visit Uganda?

In the tail end of the dry season, August is a very good month to visit Uganda.

Wildlife congregates around the few remaining watering holes, meaning sightings are common. Some of the most active animals around this time include elephants, lions and the ever-elusive leopards.

With an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, the country's parks are at their best at this time of year. 

Safaris in Queen Elizabeth National Park are excellent in August, with four of the ‘Big Five’ most active in this month. Migratory birds flock to the southern regions, making it a great time for bird enthusiasts.
