Best time for Uganda gorilla and chimpanzee safaris from Kigali Rwanda

One can book 4 Days Gorilla And Chimpanzee Safari Uganda from Kigali throughout the year. However, most of the visitors have taken the dry season as the best time to visit to go for chimpanzee and gorilla trekking safaris from Kigali, and indeed this very true because, during the rainy season, the passages into the park and the trails becomes so hard to access, making the experience in the park so difficult. However, during the dry months of December to February and June to September, the parks are dry with no incidences of mud and also the visibility of the primates and tracking becomes fine during the dry season. The chances of seeing gorillas and chimpanzees are always 90% high as long as you have the right gear and being physically fit.
