Uganda sits on the Equator, so temperatures are hot and very pleasant throughout most of the year. Most national parks in other East African countries, like Kenya and Tanzania, are formed of dry and vast savannah plains, Uganda is the opposite. The country is extremely green and lush.
Uganda is home to tropical rainforests, moist swamps, and dramatic forested mountains. It is also very diverse in its altitude – for example, temperatures are cooler in Bwindi National Park as you are much higher in altitude compared to Kidepo National Park in northern Uganda which has a lower altitude and drier savannahs. As a result, each national park in the country has its own microclimate and offers good conditions throughout the year.
