Uganda in October

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.

Prices of gorilla permits reduce significantly in the rainy seasons so this is a great time to get a good deal on accommodation and tracking safaris. Conditions underfoot will be more difficult so this time of year is not for everyone, but if you're up for a challenge it can still be a great experience. 

Depending on when the rains arrive the beginning of the month may even remain dry and until the heavy rains begin wildlife will still be gathering round dwindling waterholes.
