Is November a good time to visit Uganda?

November is the final month of the short rainy season in Uganda that begins in October. The country is remarkably beautiful this time of year, as the flowers are in full bloom. The thick vegetation can impede on wildlife viewing, but the landscapes are never as picturesque as they are in November.  

As November is a shoulder season in Uganda, prices may be lower at this time. Gorilla trekking is made difficult as the routes are muddy and roads are sometimes impassable. 

Much of the rain is focused to the south, meaning the north is a good option in November. Colourful migratory bird species can be seen flying into the parks, starting in the north of the country and flying south.
