Climate in Uganda
The climate in Uganda is typically tropical with little variation in temperature throughout the year. Distinctive wet and dry seasons characterise the climate of most of the country, except in the semi-arid north east. The dry season in Uganda, generally from December to February and mid-June to mid-August, is the best time to visit. The two rainy seasons are from March to May, and September to November. In the south the rainiest month is April. The mountainous areas in western and eastern Uganda can be cold at night. The best time to visit Uganda is in the drier month, specifically January and February, and June to September, as this is the best time to go gorilla-trekking in Uganda.
