Mountain Gorilla Trekking In Dry Season, Gorilla trekking is one of the most amazing and breathtaking tourist activities worldwide and should not be missed on your catalog. For this reason, Uganda and Rwanda respectively have equatorial climates with mainly two seasons which influence the mountain gorilla experience.
The two countries have both dry and wet seasons all around the year. The dry seasons are December, January, February, June, July, and early August. The rainy seasons are in April, May, November, and September. With the climate changes caused by global warming, we are facing changes in these seasons with rains and drought happening unexpectedly. Except that mountain gorilla tracking takes place throughout the year, there are positions and negatives of each season.
Among the advantages of tracking mountain gorillas in the dry season in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda and Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park is that there is less rainfall. Rainfall can disorganize gorilla tracking especially the fact that this activity occurs on the ground and rains disturb roads making them almost impassable as they can be slippery and muddy this is a serious challenge since you won’t be able to walk or climb the hills in Bwindi forest, Mgahinga gorilla national park in Uganda and volcanoes national park in Rwanda.
Please take note that there is no assurance that it will not rain during the dry season in Uganda and Rwanda as a result of global warming which has significantly affected the climate of these countries and maybe a traveler has to plan and arrange for both. Specially, for Bwindi impenetrable forest national park, rain can come at any time of any day since Bwindi forest has a huge tropical rainforest and this influences the climate and weather conditions within and around the forest and the neighboring villages.
