Uganda in June

June

June is the first month of Uganda’s long dry season, characterised by clear blue skies, still-lush landscapes, and increasingly good wildlife viewing as water sources begin to dwindle in the parks.

What’s the weather going to be like in Uganda in June?

  • Days are consistently warm and sunny, with clear blue skies
  • June marks the beginning of the dry season, but as Uganda has a tropical climate there’s still a chance of rain
  • Temperatures are warm
  • It’s a good idea to pack light layers, and a waterproof just in case.

What are the highlights of visiting Uganda in June?

  • All parks become accessible again now that the rains have died down
  • Even in peak season, parks in Uganda rarely feel busy and overcrowded
  • As it’s the first month after the wet season, the scenery is still beautifully green and lush
  • This is one of the best times for gorilla and chimpanzee trekking – the ground is dry and easier to traverse
  • June is ideal for game viewing, as wildlife tends to congregate around waterholes and there’s less vegetation to block your view
  • Murchison Falls is still flowing heavily after the long rainy season
  • Where animals are gathering around drying water sources, there are some superb photo opportunities.

Any lowlights?

  • Properties have limited availability during the dry season, so it’s worth booking your first-choice accommodation well in advance
  • Rates are on the rise following the end of the rains
  • Gorilla permits increase in price, and can sell out months in advance
  • Mosquito numbers start to diminish but are still generally prevalent.
