Generally speaking, Uganda sees two distinct seasons each year: the dry season and the rainy season. There are two distinct dry seasons: the long one, which lasts from mid-June to mid-October, and the short one, which runs from December to February. In addition, there are two distinct rainy seasons in the year: the long wet season, which occurs in March, April, May, and early June, and the short rainy season, which occurs in late October to early November and is characterized by intense rain. Seasons and climatic variations have a significant influence on the annual number of visitors to Queen Elizabeth National Park.

The dry season is the best time to visit Queen Elizabeth National Park because of the pleasant, occasionally hot weather, passable roads, and easy access to the animals, which can be seen at the water collection points when they are gathering in large numbers to drink. Walking on the dry fields will be easy during the dry season, making chimpanzee trekking in Kyambura George exciting.

Travelers flock to Uganda in great numbers to enjoy wildlife viewing in Queen Elizabeth National Park during the dry season, which is also known as the busiest time for wildlife safaris in the country. Travelers must book in advance to ensure they don’t miss out on the accommodations as they are planning to visit Queen Elizabeth for a safari. This causes the accommodation lodge to be overbooked and crowded with many visitors, forcing safari lodges to raise their accommodation rates due to the high demand from the majority of travelers.

In contrast, the roads leading to Queen Elizabeth National Park are muddy and slick during the rainy season, making it difficult for cars to pass through the lodge. Since there aren’t many people visiting Queen Elizabeth National Park at the same time, hotels have lower occupancy rates and can offer visitors to the park discounted rates for lodging, and tour operators can also offer discounts to people visiting the park.

Viewing the African Big Five wildlife creatures on a game safari is made possible by visiting Queen Elizabeth National Park. For example, the enormous elephants that are abundant in Queen Elizabeth National Park, the cape buffalo, the leopards, and the tree-climbing lions in Ishasha Sector Lions.
