Uganda wildlife safaris

Uganda wildlife safaris are trips that taken in almost all the 10 national parks of Uganda. The Uganda wildlife Authority has conserved and protected the national parks which are the habitat to the wildlife species living together in harmony in their environment.

According to ecosystem resilience principals, without human interruption with the natural environment, nature has got to maintain itself. Therefore even the wildlife populations maintains itself that is why in Uganda, the Uganda wildlife animals we have the predators and preys and those animals those animals  which are not eaten by another die of age and diseases

For example, the herbivorous animals like the elephants, impalas, zebra among others feed on grass and when the grass are extinct in one area they will move to another area and by the time they come back the area they left without grass, they will find it when it has grown and at the same time the carnivorous animals like the lions, leopards who feed on fresh are busy hunting these impalas, the zebras, elephant among others for food.

In the long run as the herbivores eat the grass and the carnivores hunt the herbivores for food, the carnivores help to maintain the carrying capacity of the national park by reducing on the herbivorous animal population who act as prey to the carnivores who are predators and the predators die of natural calamities like death and diseases if not killed by the human being. The whole process is what is referred to as the eco-system resilience of nature and at some other point human beings also contribute to the ecosystem resilience through poaching, hunting,  fetching.

Best season for Uganda wildlife safaris.

Although the Uganda wildlife safaris are done throughout the year, there is the best recommended season to enjoy the wildlife tours in their natural environment.  In Uganda we have two seasons that we experience throughout the year and that is the rainy season and the dry season which influences the flow of tourist in the country.

The best recommended season to travel is during the dry season when it is easy to drive through the dusty road trails, at the same time also hiking in Bwindi forest becomes easy as travelers trek the mountain gorillas as well as trekking the chimpanzees becomes easy and the roads are passable.

The dry season is during the months of June to October the long dry season, December to February the short dry seasons in the year.

While as during the rainy season in the months of March, April, May and November there is usually too much rains and the animals are hiding in the forest, the roads and trekking trails are wet, muddy and slippery hiking becomes difficult if the travelers are not physically fit.

We therefore recommend travelers to visit Uganda during the dry season for enjoy their Uganda wildlife safari adventure
