Best time to visit Eastern Region:

Dry Season (December to February and June to August): These months generally have lower rainfall and are considered the dry seasons in the Eastern Region. The weather during these periods is typically drier, with sunny days and lower humidity. It's an ideal time for exploring attractions like the Sipi Falls near Mbale or the source of the Nile in Jinja.

Wet Season (March to May and September to November): These months bring heavier rainfall and higher humidity. Rainfall can be intense, leading to occasional flooding and muddy roads.
