can i trek mountain gorillas in january
Are you planning a mountain gorilla trekking trip in January and wondering whether it’s the best time to go? Here are all the tips you may need to know about gorilla trekking in January.
Mountain gorilla trekking is the best tourism activity in East Africa. With over 1000 mountain gorillas in the African jungle in their natural environment, travelers can visit Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Mgahinga National Park, Virunga National Park, and Volcanoes National Park to enjoy a January mountain gorilla trek.
January is among the dry months in Uganda and Rwanda, with no rainfall or low rainfall every year. January is the best month for travelers to enjoy gorilla trekking. Other months with low rainfall are February, June, July, August, September, and December, which offer a good gorilla trekking experience and are considered dry seasons.
Despite the fact that little or no rain is expected in January, it is possible to get heavy rain on some days because mountain gorillas live in tropical rain forests.
If you are planning to have a mountain gorilla trekking trip in January, you are kindly advised to book at least four to five months prior to your travel dates in order for us to secure your mountain gorilla permit while the availability is still there.
