October weather & when to go
October is the start of the shoulder season so prices will be lower and lodge availability will start to free up. This does of course mean weather will be more unpredictable, but despite rain, temperatures are likely to remain warm. Most of Uganda's parks will be accessible at this time they just won't be at their best. The climate at Murchison Falls is steady year-round so a visit to see the Nile and the impressive falls is a great add on to an October safari.
Wildlife sightings will still be possible in the game reserves so look out for tree-climbing lions hiding out during rain showers or gorillas sheltering under large leaves.
