Gorilla trekking is one of the most amazing and breath taking tourist activity worldwide and should not miss on your catalogue. Uganda and Rwanda respectively have got equatorial climates with mainly two seasons which influence the mountain gorilla experience. And today, safari vacations and travel services we put our focus on Mountain Gorilla tracking in dry season.
The two countries have both got 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 the months of 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 take place throughout the year, there are positions and negatives of each season.
Among the advantages of tracking mountain gorillas in 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 or rainfall. Rainfall can disorganize gorilla tracking especially the fact that this activity occurs on ground and rains disturb roads making them almost impassable as they can be slippery and muddy and this is 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 may be a traveller has to plan and arrange for both. In a special way, 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 forest and the neighbouring villages.
