When to Go on Safari Yoga Retreat In Africa?

This is among the commonly asked questions regarding Uganda. However, the obvious answer is – You may visit Uganda at any time of year! The main difference may be the cost of your safari which is normally higher in the peak season. Although it’s true that the country experiences rainy seasons, these rains aren’t bad enough to prevent you from traveling or enjoying your safari. The months May and April are often discounted by most tour operators and the Uganda Wildlife Authority normally offers discounts for the gorilla permits. However I recommend that you visit the country during its dry seasons which are from January to February and then June to the start of September.

Game viewing is best during the dry season when most animals gather around the water holes. Bird watching can be done all year round though preferably from November to April when there are several migrant species are present. you can check out our latest itinerary to learn more
