November weather and when to go

Thanks to the rains throughout October, Uganda’s vegetation is starting to thrive in November. Dry plains become verdant and although this makes wildlife sightings more difficult the landscapes are stunning. As November is a shoulder season in Uganda, prices may be lower at this time. If you’re not opposed to some arduous trekking and potential rain, it is possible to track gorillas at this time but please be aware this is not the optimum time to visit Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

November sees the start of the best birdwatching season (November-April) as migratory birds arrive. Uganda is known for its huge variety of birds so if this is something that you are particularly interested in, please do tell your guides and they will be able to point out some unique species.

Rwenzori Mountains, Uganda

Murchison Falls National Park is a year-round destination so a visit to see the powerful waters of the Nile surging through a cleft in the rift valley is a great add on to your safari at this time of year. Here you can witness Nile crocodiles, river hippos, elephants and numerous bird species.
