Uganda in June

enter image description here

June is one of the driest months of the year in the south of Uganda, while it’s the rainy season in the north of the country. It’s one of the best months for wildlife viewing in the parks in the south, and it’s also a great month for gorilla trekking. It’s the start of the peak season in Uganda, and you’ll need to book far in advance for gorilla trekking permits and lodging in popular spots.
