The peak seasons for flights to Uganda are determined largely by the availability of safari tours and specific permits. In light of this major attraction, the most frequented time is the dry season from June to September and from December to February. July and August as well as Christmas and New Year are the country’s busiest periods. In the savannah reserves, vegetation during the dry season is sparse and animals are easier to spot around sources of water. So tourists who book flights to Uganda for the sole purpose of wildlife tracking, favour these months.
