Is June a good time to visit Uganda?
June is one of the best times of the year to visit Uganda. Average day time temperatures sit around 27 degrees Celsius, and the retreating vegetation is less likely to obstruct your view of the wildlife, but enough of it lingers to keep the country beautifully verdant.
You should still be prepared for sporadic rainfall, you are on the equator after all!
As gorillas retreat back up to their mountain top fortresses, gorilla trekking generally takes longer, but the routes are less bogged down and muddy. The lack of rain means the ground is dry and easier to traverse, making longer treks much more enjoyable.
The Murchison Falls still flow heavily after the long rainy season, making them one of the highlights of Uganda over this period.
Visitor numbers start to increase, but even at the peak, Uganda's parks rarely feel busy or overcrowded.
