Lake Mburo NP is open year-round, but the Dry seasons from June to August and December to February are the best time for general wildlife viewing as animals gather around the lake and other water sources. Wildife viewing is still ok in the Wet seasons from March to May and from September to November and at this time the park lush and scenic.

Best Time June to August and December to February (Dry season)
High Season June to September (This is the peak of the gorilla tracking season, bringing more people to Mburo as well)
Low Season April, May, October and November (Some lodges and camps shut down)
Best Weather June, July and January to February (Little rainfall)
Worst Weather March to May and September to November (High rainfall, traveling on roads may become challenging)

June to August and December to February Dry Seasons

  • Great wildlife viewing as vegetation thins and animals congregate around the lake
  • There are more sunny days
  • The air is clouded by haze, making the views less impressive

March to May and September to November Wet Seasons

  • Wildlife viewing is also good during the Wet season when animals can be seen in the open valleys
  • There are fewer people and rates might be lower
  • Migratory birds are present
  • The air is clear, and landscapes are green
  • Wet roads may become difficult to negotiate and hiking trails are slippery
  • Constant drizzle can occur for several days in a row
