The Uganda Safari in March is the beginning of the rainy season of the year in the southern part of Uganda, while it is still dry in the northern parts of Uganda, and March is not a perfect time for visiting Uganda for gorilla tracking experience and wildlife viewing.
March is the start of the long rainy season in the entire country, however, travelers should know that Uganda stays open for tourism though it’s a wet season. Even though none of the national parks are operating under normal conditions, this presents an opportunity for wildlife viewing. Additionally, lodges, hotels, and other services may offer discounts in March, which is not a high season and has fewer travelers.
Although March is a rainy month, there are often breaks in the rain. After a rain shower, the skies may clear up, providing ample time to explore and relax during your Uganda safari in March.
An added advantage of traveling in March is that there is plenty of food for the mountain gorillas on the lower slopes of the mountains. Therefore, though the trekking can be challenging since you will use the wet terrain underfoot, there is the likelihood of tracking mountain gorillas closer to the beginning of the trail and it will require you to cover shorter distances.
Most travelers ask if the month is perfect for trekking the mountain gorillas while it’s a rainy season in Uganda, and Safari Vacations And Travel Services think and say it is the best and most exciting time as offers a double experience, from the wet routes and coming face to face with the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.
