Is January a good time to go to Uganda?

January is one of the best times of year to go to Uganda.

Uganda sits on the equator, which means rainfall should be expected in any month. However, at the turn of the year the rainfall is very sporadic and short. Average daytime temperatures are in the high 20s (°C) in the south and in the 30s in the north. 

Wildlife viewing is particularly good at this time of year as there is less vegetation to obstruct your view.

Conditions are perfect for gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, as despite the hot temperatures, the altitude takes the edge off the heat.
