Are you planning a mountain gorilla trekking trip in January and thinking whether it’s the best time to go? Here are all the tips you may need to know about mountain 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 January mountain gorilla trek.


January is among the dry months in Uganda / Rwanda with no rainfall or low rainfall every year. January is the best month  for travelers to enjoy mountain gorilla trekking. Other months with low rainfalls are February, June, July, August, September, and December, which offer a good mountain gorilla trekking experience and are considered as dry seasons.


However, despite the fact there is low or no rainfall expected in January, it can easily get heavy rainfall on some days since 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 when the availability is still there.
