  MAP & WEATHER

Weather
UGANDA - AUGUST & JANUARY
The best time to visit Uganda is late December to late February, as the weather at this time of year is generally dry (though hot). A close second is the June to September period. The bulk of the country enjoys a tropical climate tempered by altitude. The hottest months are from December to February, when it gets up to 84°F. Temperatures are never excessively high and humidity does not reach the consistently high levels found in equatorial lowlands. Wet spells lasting a day or two are not unusual but much of the rain comes in heavy thunder showers. There is no real cool season but the daily range of temperature is enough to make the nights cool rather than chilly.
