Is March a good time to visit Uganda?

March is the start of the long rainy season in Uganda, so it is not the best time of year to visit. 

That said, there is still ample opportunity for wildlife sightings and sun usually follows the short, sharp bursts of rainfall.

Being outside the peak season means prices are likely to be lower, and you shouldn't have issues with availability at the key lodges, and for wildlife permits. 

The heavy rain does impact the roads, making some routes less accessible and making for bumpier journeys!

Many animals retreat to the safety of the trees in order to give birth to their young in March. This makes hillside treks a great option, and the rains trigger widespread bird migration. Daily temperatures are around 26 degee Celsius.
