The best time to visit Toro-Semuliki Wildlife Reserve is in the dry seasons that are between from December-February and June-July because during this period the vegetation being less thick, trials are less slippery and wet hence making the trip excellent and visitors experience well-undertaking activities with no disturbance from rainfall. As there is little or no rainfall in the place, this has favored tourist attractions in the park to take places such as Sempaya hot springs, hiking and nature walks, chimpanzee tracking, game drives, and others.
Tourists are not advised to visit Semuliki national park in the wet season that is March, April, May, October, and November when the vegetation is thicker and all hiking trails tend to be slippery and wet and these making activities difficult. though during the wet season, the chimpanzee tracking and other primates easier to see since food can be easily accessible and the primates no longer moving long distances, but the best recommended time for visitors who are planning to visit Semuliki national park is much ideal in the dry season.
But note that, African weather is unpredictable so we expecting rainfall at any time through the year and also in the dry season it can rain, therefore you are advised to be well prepared for every tourism safari into the park to avoid inconveniences by carrying long-sleeved clothes, waterproof rain jacket, hat, packed lunch, sunglasses, energy drinks, hand gloves and so on.
