DRIER PERIOD

A brief drier interlude before the more intense long rains arrive in March. The altitude does, however, mean that this ‘dry season’ is a little unpredictable. While this park always has good birding during this time of the year migratory species can be found in full breeding colours.

Its location so close to the equator means that the Queen Elizabeth National Park has consistent temperatures throughout the year, while the high altitude (884 to 1,337m or 2,900 to 4,386ft) moderate these to a pleasant average maximum of 29°C/84°F through the year. Mornings can be surprisingly cool, so do pack a light fleece encase you need one.

Queen Elizabeth National Park has no distinct dry season, although June and July do tend to be the driest months of the year. There is also a slight lapse in rainfall in January and February.

The park can be good throughout the year, but game viewing is best in the driest months of the year, as vegetation thins and wildlife become a little more concentrated. Drier walking trails also make chimpanzee trekking a little easier.
