Traveling to Uganda even though it is a landlocked country has been made easy in the past few years. Coming to Uganda involves flights as the only entry when hot in neighboring countries. From major airports like London Heathrow or Gatwick to Entebbe International Airport, you will definitely need to fly.

However when you are in the neighboring countries of Kenya , Rwanda, Tanzania and Congo you can enter by road, the water transport cam only be used by those countries sharing with Uganda a fresh water boy of Lake Victoria as well as the River Nile.

The best time to visit Uganda is during its dry seasons: from December to February and June to September. These periods offer ideal conditions for wildlife viewing and gorilla trekking while minimizing rainfall and muddy trails. However the rain patterns have completely changed that rains are even in January, talk to your travel partner about this before you make a booking.
