Best time to go for your honeymoon safaris in Uganda. 

Although you may go on a honeymoon safari in Uganda any time of the year, the dry season in the months of June, July, August, September, December, January, and February is the greatest. The vegetation will be thin during the dry season, making it easier to see animals clearly. Access roads, gorilla trekking, and hiking trails will also be dry and usable, in contrast to the wet/rainy season when the trails are muddy, slippery, and wet, making trekking challenging.
