Peak ( Jan - Feb , Jun - Sep )

Essentially a year-round destination, January/February and June to September are the dry months, making wildlefe spotting a pleasure, with all animals coming out to play, including the magnificent Mountain Gorillas.

Shoulder ( Dec )

December may see some rainfall as it leads into the peak dry season of Jan/Feb, and hence can be counted as the only shoulder month of the year, a perfect mix of wet and dry. On wet days, wildlife watching can get a little cumbersome, but it’s all still available if you have the patience and don’t mind the soaking tropical rain.

Low ( Mar - May , Oct - Nov )

The months of March to May and October & November are decidedly the wet months of the year. Wildlife watching is still very much on, but animals harder to spot and many trekking trails will be inaccessible. Travel at this time only if you cannot make it in the drier, better months; you will still get your Mountain Gorilla fix, albeit through mist and sheeting rain.
