Another rainy month of the year across Uganda is May, though it is not as wet as April. It is still a low season and this means you can still get discounts hotels, transport, lodging and other services.
The huge rains of March and April and March continue into May so this month cannot be considered the best time to travel into Uganda. Though if you don’t worry about the rains during your safari, it can be an amazing time to explore Uganda. Landscapes will be grassy and so green after the rains of April and it makes it difficult to view wildlife but still the vegetation will give photography lovers super and stunning background.
For Gorilla tracking in southern western Uganda’s Bwindi impenetrable forest national park mgahinga gorilla national park, may is not the best time to travel as the ground will still be wet making trekking more difficult. You can opt to other national parks which can be visited in may include Kibale forest national park for chimpanzee tracking and Murchison falls national park to explore the mighty Nile River.
Some roads and trails are impassable as they will be bumpy and slippery during the starting of May depending on the intensity of the rainfall during this season, and kindly ask safari vacations and travel services in advance of booking if there are certain destinations you would like to visit.
May is not considered as the best time to go on a Uganda safari, though you can still have a variety of options, this is the perfect compensation for the scarce wildlife sightings due to presence of food and abundance in water and grazing land away from the proximity of the game viewing tracks, note that this is the best to see the newborns, and different bird species.
