Uganda is a landlocked country nestled in central-east Africa with a diverse landscape from the mountainous and dense Bwindi Forest National Park to the open Queen Elizabeth National Park. There is little difference in temperature during the 'Winter' and 'Summer' seasons in Uganda, but there are differences in rainfall with long and short rains.
The dry season in Uganda is from June to August and December to February, with average daytime temperatures of around 27°C/81°F but colder in higher altitude areas. The wet season is from March to May and September to November with average daytime temperatures of 28°C/82°F. It is important to remember that temperatures drop in higher altitude areas and that rain is typical even in the dry season.
