When is the perfect time to enjoy Private Luxury Safaris?
The perfect time to enjoy Private Luxury Safaris is from June to September and December to February, during Uganda and Rwanda’s dry season when the savannah-dominated Parks are at their driest thus numerous wildlife species gather around water sources thus providing the most mind-boggling wildlife encounters. These months are also when the jungles experience less rains thus forest trails are less muddy or slippery making gorilla, chimpanzee and golden monkey treks to be less challenging.
However, the wet season from March to May and October to November are also wonderful for touring the different safari destinations in Uganda and Rwanda because phenomenal photos can be taken clearly in addition to experiencing fewer crowds.
